QUAL-1002Lean Manufacturing

The main focus of Lean manufacturing is the elimination of waste in processes and expanding a plant’s capacity for production. The various forms of waste will be discussed. Methods of eliminating them will be explored through case studies and implemented in actual practice. Students will be helped to understand Lean by studying the tenets of Lean such as value, 5S, Kaizen, Kanban, flow, total productive maintenance, and value stream mapping. Tours through manufacturing facilities of leading Lean companies will allow students to see Lean implementation in action.
