Inside the Lean Toolbox


5s for Workplace Organization

Workplace organization (5S) is the foundation for implementing workplace improvements and for creating a Lean manufacturing environment.

This workshop conveys the 5S methodology and contains case histories and visual examples from companies that have successfully applied this methodology. Participants leave with the knowledge of what visual order is and what the visual workplace looks like. In addition, participants learn how these concepts function on the production floor as well as in the office and other support function areas. Hands-on troubleshooting of visual challenges is also included in the class.

Hoshin Kanri (Lean Policy Deployment)

Hoshin Kanri is a Managing by Objectives (MBO) practice designed to help top management develop a methodology for deploying strategic initiatives in order to achieve organizational-wide alignment. Peter Drucker’s “Management by Objectives” methodology is used as a foundation for the application of several Total Quality Management tools. Japanese modifications include both vertical and horizontal catch-ball instead of MBO negotiation. Formulation of A3’s for catch-ball execution and x-matrices are also introduced.

Lean Leadership

Designed to orient management teams on the holistic view of Lean, structuring to deploy a Lean initiative, and roles & responsibilities changes.

Lean Management System

A prerequisite for an organization’s journey to creating a lean culture, Lean Management System exercises four basic management practices that enables management to effectively instill the tools of Lean into the organizational culture.

Includes leader standard work, daily accountability, visual management, and Gemba walks

Lean Office

The full-day Lean Office training workshop involves a mix of classroom style learning with an interactive live simulation where class participants take on the roles of managers and workers within a company. During the class time participants learn lean definitions and techniques. Then, the participants work in a traditional office environment with forms, calculators, and procedures. Throughout the day, they explore the application of lean techniques in the simulated office.

To apply the lean techniques, the office is transformed in three “stages” or “days” with the improvements implemented at the end of each “stage” or “day”. Through the implementation of lean techniques, office work is transformed from a confused and slow process to a much more efficient, effective, and predictable one.

Lean Performance Measures

This class helps leadership understand and explain how traditional performance measurements conflict with lean performance, understand barriers to adopting performance measurements and how to begin to overcome them. In addition, it helps leaders understand and implement the starter set of performance measurements at the corporate level, the Value Stream level, and in Production Cell to motivate lean behaviors. Finally, leaders develop a clear linkage from a company’s business strategy to performance measurements used in the value stream and in production cells.

Managing by A3

A3 management is visual technique used to communicate the status of ongoing projects, improvements and problem solving using PDCA. The technique is useful for both project management as well as problem solving. Participants are taught how to first “grasp the situation.” Participants then learn how to quantitatively represent the current state, develop the target condition, plan and manage the project, and how to reflect on outcomes for a follow up action.

Principles of Lean

Principles of Lean Manufacturing without Simulation is a 4hr overview class that provides an introduction of Lean to participants. Participants will be introduced to the 8 wastes in manufacturing. Participants will review examples of each waste and discuss Lean tools that can be used to eliminate the waste. The lecture will introduce tools such as standardized work, workplace organization, visual controls, set-up reduction, batch size reduction, point of use storage, quality at the source, workforce practices, and pull systems. No previous experience is required.

Participants will walk away understanding the 8 wastes in manufacturing. A mixture of lecture and visual examples teaches participants how and where to begin looking for waste within their own work area and processes.

Principles of Lean with Simulation

Principles of Lean Manufacturing (with live simulation) is an overview class that provides a foundation for all other classes in the series. Participants begin by manufacturing various assemblies in a traditional manufacturing setting. The results of the first simulation round will provide the setting for continuous improvement by applying the lean manufacturing principles.  Participants will have the knowledge of understanding the 8 wastes in manufacturing. A mixture of lecture and hands-on simulations will teach lessons in standardized work, workplace organization, visual controls, set-up reduction, batch size reduction, point of use storage, quality at the source, workforce practices, and pull systems. Each is designed to eliminate waste in the manufacturing processes.

Problem Solving

All too often, organizations solve the same problems repeatedly. As a result, operators become experts at fixing, rather than preventing problems and identifying opportunities for continual improvement activities.

This hands-on course provides the background and skills necessary to effectively conduct problem solving by proper containment, root cause analysis and prevention. The methodology introduced provides structure and analytical methods conducive to both individual and group problem solving. The approach helps detect potential problems and can alleviate chronic failure problems within an organization. It uses the PDCA method as the systematic pattern to solving product/process related problems and provides hands-on application of basic problem solving tools and techniques including process mapping, fishbone diagramming, brainstorming, affinity diagramming, 5 why’s and others.

SetUp Reduction (SMED)

Systematically reducing set up times of production equipment is vital to creating capacity and flexibility. It is often the key enabler for implementing additional Lean practices. This workshop presents the 4-step methodology for performing quick changeover. Setup reduction and quick changeover is the concept of reducing the time lost setting up and changing over machines in less than ten minutes. These goals may not be reached right away, but through continuous and breakthrough improvement, a manufacturer will eventually see results that save time and money, enable them to reduce batch size to reduce working capital, and decrease process lead time.

Pull/Kanban Systems

Control shop floor inventory and production schedules by implementing pull systems. Design & implement a visually driven, employee-controlled material replenishment system.

Implement repetitive and nonrepetitive pull systems, set up point-of-use material storage, interface with planning systems, and balance lot sizes with capacity, not economic order quantity.

Total Productive Maintenance (TPM)

This course offers the student a method to proactively maintain machines and equipment at their peak productivity. Participants go away with an understanding of TPM and the five major roles in effective deployment.

Each student should understand how TPM increases overall equipment effectiveness and how it can help avoid interruptions to production to achieve reduced batch sizes and increased equipment performance. The course provides a deep understanding of the 8 pillars of TPM.

Value Stream Management

This course teaches the 8-step method of implementing Value Stream Management and is designed to create the awareness and necessity of the 8-step Value Stream Management process. It introduces the use of successful lean tools for selecting product families, mapping the value streams of selected families, and creating a plan and management system to transform the value stream to achieve customer expectations. The final outcome of Value Stream Management is the creation of a complete, visual plan for lean transformations.

Value Stream Mapping

This workshop is designed to develop the participant’s skill with value stream maps to analyze the transactional business processes in detail from the process and customer’s viewpoints. Participants learn value stream mapping as a critical skill to eliminating waste in the existing process, how to develop a detailed, data-rich value stream map in a hands-on manner, and helpful mapping hints.

In addition, participants learn how to use the maps by developing their ability to see the flow and create current state value stream maps based on understanding of Lean techniques. Finally, they are able to identify specific improvements to apply, create a future state map, and prioritize and select Lean projects to begin deploying to create Lean office processes.

Kaizen Rapid Improvement Event

A Rapid Improvement (KAIZEN) Event is a team activity aimed at rapid implementation of Lean methods to eliminate production waste in particular areas of the plant.  This workshop covers the three phases of conducting an improvement event including: 1) Planning and Preparation; 2) Implementation of the Event itself, and 3) Presentation, Celebration, and Follow-Up.


Lean Product Development

Master your product development process. Develop new products through balance of quality, performance, and cost.


Introduction

This course is an introduction to the basic mechanics necessary for an understanding of how a product development team can accelerate the product development cycle by first understanding the traditional methods used in typical product development environments. The prioritization of customer requirements, cost management, and a basic overview of the tools used for rapid project execution are discussed.

Deep Dive

Despite an increasing need for speed and efficiency, much of the effort expended by product development teams is often unnecessary and potentially wasteful. In many cases, only one hour in eight of team members’ time is spent directly creating value for their customers.

Deep Dive Details

The Lean Product Development Workshop presents a set of leading-edge, practical tools for slashing waste and increasing speed and efficiency. The “lean methods” described in this course enable dramatic reductions in time-to-market while freeing up valuable resources for additional project work. Firms that have embraced these practical, waste-eliminating tools have reported up to fifty-percent reduction in launch schedules, significant improvements in gross margin, and enhanced customer satisfaction.

This hands-on workshop covers all aspects of the subject, including a step-by-step process for customizing your own lean process that will enable rapid, high-value product development.

3P

This workshop describes a comprehensive set of practical, easily applied techniques for reducing the manufacturing cost of any product. Students will learn how to apply these powerful tools to real products, in real time, with high efficiency.

3P Details

The product development process represents the most complex, challenging, and, sad to say, poorly understood activity in business. However, reducing manufacturing cost is the fastest and surest way to achieve a measurable increase in profits. The practical lean cost reduction tools presented in this workshop can be applied to both new product opportunities and existing successful products, require minimal organizational change, and can yield immediate bottom-line results. Slashing costs is a great place to begin your journey toward lean product design excellence.

The tools and methods discussed in this workshop are organized into an “itinerary” that follows the timeline of a typical product development project, from initial idea generation to product qualification and launch. Examples, exercises, and guidelines are provided for each tool to help the student decide whether that solution would be applicable to their situation. In this way, attendees can quickly craft an integrated cost-reduction strategy that is optimal for their products and markets, and gain enough understanding and confidence to get immediate results.


Lean Leadership

Lean is often viewed as a set of process improvement tools and techniques with little emphasis on the supporting systems that allows the tools to work effectively to maximize and sustain gains.

The Lean Leadership workshop is a one-day, simulation based workshop that orients the management team on the holistic view of lean, how to structure the deployment of a Strategic Lean Initiative, and the changes in roles and responsibilities that effects the management levels in the organization.


Lean Practitioner Series

Become the effective change agent & Lean implementer in this experiential series of workshops presenting Lean concepts, principles, tools, techniques, and a 3-day Kaizen (rapid improvement event).

Prepare for the Society of Manufacturing Engineers’ Lean Bronze Certification Exam


About

The Lean Enterprise Certification Series (LECP 9+3), aka Lean Bronze or Lean Practitioner Series, consists of 9 days of simulation-based, hands-on workshops that present Lean concepts, principles, tools and techniques PLUS a 3-Day Rapid Improvement Event (Kaizen).

The Kaizen Event allows participants the experience implementing newly learned Lean practices in a real factory. The program is highly interactive and experiential, not simply classroom lectures and theory. It is practical, effective and proven.

LECP is tailored for manufacturing professionals leading Lean initiatives who want to equip themselves with the skills necessary to be effective change agents and Lean implementers. Many of the Lean tools and techniques are straightforward. However, others require basic math skills such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, calculating percentages, order of numerical operations and deductive mathematical reasoning.

Successful Lean Practitioners possess the ability to overcome obstacles and embrace change, logical thought processes, superior communication skills and team-based project deployment experience.

Topics

Basics of Lean

Basics of Lean is a simulation-based workshop that presents foundational terminology, concepts, tools and techniques of Lean. It reviews fundamental Lean principles such as definitions, value added versus non-value added and 8 wastes. The simulation brings a “seeing is believing” component to the training by allowing participants to implement Lean tools and witness the operational and financial impacts. This workshop also includes keys to successful implementations and how to deal with objections.

Kaizen Team Facilitation

Kaizen Blitz, a Rapid Improvement Event approach for deploying waste reduction activities energize and bring quick return on investment. Furthermore, Kaizen Events provide the training platform to ‘learn by doing’. However, the skills required to effectively manage an event go beyond the knowledge of the tools. This workshop brings a level of competence and understanding to kaizen event participants, leaders, and facilitators so they may be self-sufficient in running events and help participants understand, organize, plan, and implement Kaizen events in any setting.

Work Simplification & Job Methods Improvement

Work Simplification uses the Training Within Industry (TWI) Job Methods Improvement methodology and demonstration materials that enable workers at all levels to improve their work. Using job methods breakdowns and ‘20 questions’ techniques, The Work Simplification methodology identifies ways to eliminate, rearrange, combine or simplify tasks in work. The methodology includes reconstructing an improved job method breakdown sheet and translating improvements into an Improvement Proposal. Proposals then form the basis of a continuous improvement system which engages the entire workforce for ‘everybody, everyday’ improvement.

Total Productive Maintenance (TPM)

No one disputes that machine downtime creates chaos, is wasteful and ruins production performance. This simulation-based workshop presents fundamental TPM concepts, terminology, tools and techniques applicable in machine-intensive environments. Materials, examples and simulation focus on environments where a single machine makes products in their entirety (like injection molding, blend and fill, etc.). The workshop focuses on the four-phase approach to implementing Preventive and Predictive Maintenance and Autonomous Maintenance techniques that form a systematic approach to reducing the six major equipment losses.

5S, Workplace Organization, Visual Factory Management

This workshop conveys the 5S methodology and contains case histories and visual examples from companies that have successfully applied this methodology. Participants leave with the knowledge of what visual order is and what the visual workplace looks like. In addition, participants learn how these concepts function on the production floor as well as in the office and other support function areas. Hands-on troubleshooting of visual challenges is also included in the class.

Problem Solving & Mistake Proofing

The Problem Solving and Mistake Proofing workshop provides the background and skills necessary to lead effective root cause analyses. Problem Solving is a structured, team based, analytical approach that helps detect and solve potential problems. When used correctly it can alleviate chronic failure problems within an organization. In this workshop, you will learn how to apply several techniques to detect, identify, analyze and solve performance problems by understanding variation and uncovering the root causes. In addition, participants are introduced to effective ways of gathering data for root cause analysis applying the Lean Six Sigma DMAIC problem solving approach. Mistake Proofing is also introduced as an effective method to prevent defects.

Setup Reduction (SMED)

Systematically reducing set up times of production equipment is vital to creating capacity and flexibility. It is often the key enabler for implementing additional Lean practices. This workshop presents the 4-step methodology for performing quick changeover. Setup reduction and quick changeover is the concept of reducing the time lost setting up and changing over machines in less than ten minutes. These goals may not be reached right away, but through continuous and breakthrough improvement, a manufacturer will eventually see results that save time and money, enable them to reduce batch size to reduce working capital, and decrease process lead time.

Pull/Kanban

Having the right material at the right place at the right time is critical for maximizing system productivity. This workshop focuses on proper buffer location and sizing of repetitive purchased, manufactured, or finished goods inventories through a 6 step methodology. Participants determine good ‘part candidates’ for pull systems, understand demand variation and how to make demand adjustments, understand production or purchase frequency and their effects on buffer size, and calculate order points and quantities.

Standardized Work and Cellular Flow Manufacturing

Cellular/Flow manufacturing is the linking of manual and machine operations into the most efficient combination to maximize value-added content while minimizing waste. This requires workstations to be located next to each other, typically in the shape of the letter ‘U’. This is where the term ‘cellular’ originates, as each production ‘line’ becomes its own individual production cell. With the creation of these cells, products begin to flow through the manufacturing process more efficiently which maximizes the contributions of the workforce to create value. Participants learn the 5-step methodology for cell design and implementation.

Value Stream Management

This course is designed to create the awareness and necessity of the 8 step Value Stream Management process. It introduces the use of successful lean tools and performance metrics for selecting product families, mapping the value streams of selected families, and creating a plan and management system to transform the value stream to achieve customer expectations. The final outcome of Value Stream Management is the creation of a complete, visual plan for lean transformation of the value stream.

Hoshin Kanri

Hoshin Planning is at the heart of the lean operating system and offers a method for defining where to focus for improvement, and a management tool for implementing projects to ensure bottom-line impact. It offers a guide to company leaders embracing a lean strategy for planning and execution. Strategy Deployment is especially important for lean leaders since it assures lean is aimed at the right problems to enable profit management.

Training Within Industry (TWI)

TWI, Training Within Industry, is a dynamic program of hands-on learning and practice, teaching essential skills for supervisors, team leaders, and anyone who directs the work of others from all industries and vocations.

To support a continuous improvement environment, workers need to develop the skills represented in the modules listed below. By doing so, TWI provides an immediate return on investment for companies by utilizing the productive potential of their employees.


TWI teaches the skills of job instruction, methods improvement, and leadership. In five 2-hour sessions, supervisors not only learn a well-defined and easy-to-implement method for each skill, but bring in actual jobs from their own worksites in a “learn-by-doing” approach that is efficient and effective. Each module is presented by certified instructors using the proven TWI methodology ensuring the quality standards for each training class.

Job Instruction

Demands of developing a flexible workforce and training employees require standardized best practices. Program attendees are taught how to effectively breakdown a job and deliver instruction for individual tasks. Developing and delivering training in this structured fashion fosters the conditions for process stability.

The Job Instruction method teaches preparing the operator to learn, giving a proper demonstration from a breakdown, observing the operator perform the task, and tapering off coaching with proper follow-up.

Benefits experienced when practicing Job Instruction are reduced training time, less scrap and rework, fewer accidents, and increased job satisfaction.

Job Relations

Job Relations teaches the foundations of positive employee relations. Developing and maintaining these good relationships prevents problems from arising and is paramount to earn loyalty and cooperation from others.

When problems do arise, Job Relations teaches a proven method of getting the facts, weighing options, deciding, taking action, and checking results.

Benefits experienced from practicing Job Relations include increased productivity, improved attendance, better morale, and higher employee retention rates.

Job Methods

The aim of the program is to produce greater quantities of quality products in less time by making the best use of the people, machines, and materials currently available.

Participants are taught how to break down jobs into their constituent operations.  Every detail is questioned in a systematic manner to generate ideas for improvement.  New methods are developed by eliminating, combining, rearranging, and simplifying steps in the process.

Job Methods yields significant benefits including reduced cost through productivity gains, increased throughput, and reduced work in process.

Job Safety

Based on the TWI instructional model, Job Safety (JS) is a complementary program focused on environmental health and safety. JS provides a framework for supervisors to engage employees in identifying potential hazards and eliminating them in conjunction with their training and knowledge in OSHA and EPA regulations. JS was developed in Japan and, although it was not part of the original TWI program, it plays a critical role in industry today.

This program teaches supervisors a method to analyze the chain of events leading to accidents and hazardous situations. Root causes are identified and remediated to break the chain. JS stresses that the relationship of the supervisor and employees plays a pivotal role in a safe and environmentally responsible workplace.

Problem Solving

Most companies want their front line supervisors to be self-sufficient and to solve the problems they face rather than wait for someone else to do it for them. The TWI Problem Solving program consolidates and integrates the proven TWI methodologies of JI, JR, and JM under one plan for this purpose. Companies already employing one or more of the TWI skills can leverage these supervisory abilities and gain even more value from them. It gives renewed meaning to the TWI methods with a more specific focus.
