This practical workshop explains the theory of lean manufacturing and waste reduction techniques. Participants will work on a virtual production line to eliminate these wastes by working together to identify changes in production which will increase productivity and reduce inventory.
By the end of the workshop participants will:
- understand the theory of 8 wastes in manufacturing
- be able to identify the 8 wastes in their own processes
- be equipped to propose improvements that are likely to deliver benefits
