Why You Should Attend This 1-Day Workshop
In a lean production environment “Standardized Work” is the foundation on which improvement, performance, and cost reduction is based. Without a working understanding of standardized work and the ability to implement it, the rest of your efforts to implement lean manufacturing systems will not result in any measurable improvement. Developing your own knowledge and skills in the area of standardized work is critical if you want to be a leader in your organization’s lean transformation effort.
\nThis 1-day Manufacturing Executive Institute “LEAN Tools Series” workshop will focus on tangible techniques to establish Standardized work in your manufacturing plant. Specifically, this workshop will address:
Standardized work defined and its role in a lean production system….The foundation for improvement activity.
Define work standards, process standards, standard procedures, and standardized work…...let’s end the terminology confusion!
How to establish Takt……Setting the Metronome for the process.
How to use Motion and Time Study to establish standardized work….Good old industrial engineering practice is more important than ever.
Methods for balancing work cells with improvement as the focus.
Techniques for using Standardized work to remove waste from your process.
Maintaining standardized work…. shop floor issues, metrics, & audit.
How to avoid potential pitfalls when implementing standardized work. \nThis valuable 1-day Manufacturing Executive Institute “LEAN Tools Series” workshop should be particularly valuable to Managers, Engineers, Production Supervisors/leads and anyone who is struggling with the implementation of lean Manufacturing. Do not miss this opportunity to learn about this foundational and often misunderstood lean tool.
Technical, organizational and behavioral impediments to successful and rapid deployment of these techniques will also be addressed so that participants can return to their respective companies and begin implementation of these techniques the following Monday.
