Lean manufacturing

Ref No: 2015021

Lean Manufacturing is a systematic method in production management aiming at improvement through continual improvement and eliminating waste (muda) [in Japanese], taking into consideration the waste resulted from overburden (muri) and the waste resulted from workloads (mura).
This course is designed to familiarize participants with the concept of Lean Manufacturing (LM). At first, this course will introduce the principles of LM and the basics of Lean thinking and discusses the fundamental definitions associated with LM and the characteristics of the Lean enterprise. Then, this course will focus on the practical view of LM by identifying the major practices and techniques that are commonly adopted to achieve a successful transformation towards lean enterprise. It emphasizes on the implementation procedures of each practice and the potential achievements from applying it. Finally, the course will present the key performance measures that could be used to assess the progress of implementing LM.
For AMAD Tech cares about the interest of its clients and reducing wastes during the production process, we proudly provide this training course for continuous development and reducing waste.
