Make your production line LEAN before you buy it!

What is Cardboard engineering?  A practical method to design Lean processes and flow with a 1: 1 model implemented in an industrial workplace. Eliminates costly modifications after release and start of production, this is designing a Lean process.

Methodology benefits:

  • Reduction of capital Investment ( 20%- 40% less)
  • Optimized layout & material flow (transport and floor space)
  • Ergonomic & Safe (avoiding Dirty, Dangerous, and Difficult)
  • Flexibles for volume and product changes (takt alignment)
  • Reduced lead times and inventories (WIP and buffers)
  • No additional/ unplanned cost for unnecessary correction loops
  • High level of motivation among employees by integrating the works of gutters and improvement

Workshop Objective:

In our 2-day-workshop participants develop the skills to optimize the value added stream, developing waste free work flows  with a “hands on” process analysis.

Give the teams related with the new product development process,  the opportunity to work out and simulate the best solution for a value stream, before investments are done, delivering a higher level of quality, productivity, safety and delivery at the start up.

Main value for participants:

  • Learn in a practical way how to design an optimized process flow and how to put it in an efficient assembly system.
  • Work in teams, receiving knowledge and sharing with other colleagues ideas to implemented right away in your site.
  • Participants will be able to pass the knowledge on their companies, being able to design new work flows, identify potential waste sources, and evaluate their efficiency.
