LEAN MANUFACTURING TRAINING

Achieve high performance in Quality, Delivery, Cost through a Kaizen Culture

Why Lean Manufacturing

The Lean management system (founded on the Toyota Production System) is a management philosophy which shortens the time between the customer order and the product shipment by eliminating all inefficiencies (sources of waste).

This it is ultimately reflected in terms of quality, delivery, cost and greater team morale, making a company capable to overcome bigger challenges and their competitors.

Developing a Lean Culture provides a competitive advantage in terms of innovation (improve the current state) and adaptability (reaction to problems and market changes).

Key Benefits

“Identify with Value Stream Mapping the main opportunities to achieve an overall improvement

“Execute and manage Kaizen cycles to improve  quality, cost, delivery and safety

“Establish Lean production methods and teams to achieve sustainable high performance
