Principles of Lean Manufacturing with Live Simulation (Lean 101) is a one-day seminar that introduces Lean Manufacturing in a classroom discussion combined with live simulation sessions that demonstrate the Lean concepts learned in the lectures.

Each training session has 16-22 participants and includes 4 hours of classroom training, and 4 hours of a simulation game where trainees assume different roles in an imaginary company that transforms from mass production to Lean methods.

Lean Manufacturing doesn’t require a large capital investment or increased human resources. In fact, it shows you how to do more with less – less capital equipment and less floor space – by getting the waste out and replacing it with value-added processes.

Adopting a Lean approach is helping companies become faster and more responsive to customer requirements while using fewer resources.

In this introductory course, students will learn how to:

* Reduce cycle time

* Reduce floor space

* Reduce inventory

* Stimulate teamwork

* Improve productivity

* Improve cash flow
