Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this management course:

Apply LEAN fundamentals to reduce inefficiencies, lower costs, and increase revenue.

Processing requests taking forever? Customers calling to complain about delays and high delivery costs? Worried you could be losing business as a result? LEAN process improvement tools offer simple fixes that will change your thinking, improve your operations, AND deliver quick solutions. LEAN can be especially relevant if you're coming out of the recession with fewer resources and need to deliver more with less.

In this course, you'll discover there are 7 types of waste and 5 methods to eliminate it—5S, Poka Yoke, Kanban, and Kaizen. You will learn the DMAIC process (define, measure, analyze, improve, and control), LEAN metrics, and how LEAN relates to Six Sigma. Now, you can map the customer value stream and determine which activities add value to the customer and which do not. Then, you will learn to eliminate or curtail non-value-adding activities.

A highly interactive case study will cement the learning as you participate in repairing a broken process with instructor guidance utilizing LEAN tools and principles. You will document, measure, and analyze the cumbersome process and then apply LEAN fixes to experience and measure the improvement. Plus, learn how to maintain the fixed process and create reports on your findings. You'll leave with a LEAN enterprise plan that you can easily adapt and implement in your organization. Best of all, when you work your plan, you'll see immediate improvements that optimize efficiencies because LEAN projects deliver faster results!
