Event Description:
BASICS OF LEAN (8 hours)
Basics of Lean is a hands-on workshop that guides participants through the transition from
a traditional manufacturing environment to a Lean, world-class enterprise. By introducing and
implementing Lean principles, your company can improve efficiencies, reduce waste, increase
profitability and provide customers with high quality products at competitive prices. The end results
are well worth your investment. Participants in our workshops have reported significant results after
implementing Lean principles in their own businesses, including:
• 90% reduction in lead times
• 85% reduction in work-in-process
• 85% improvement in quality
• 50% increase in productivity
• 50% reduction in floor space

What to Expect
Immerse yourself in an exciting scenario, as suppliers, customers and/or employees of a simulated
electronic assembly factory. During the hands-on simulation you will apply Lean concepts, such as
standardized work, visual signals, batch-size reduction and pull systems – designed to give you
new tools to improve your business. We begin by manufacturing products in a chaotic, traditional
manufacturing firm. The Lean principles are applied to the results of your first simulation. For
the remainder of the day, we revisit the manufacturing environment and use the Lean techniques
that have been presented. You will learn the principles of Lean Manufacturing and how to apply them
to your company. You will be able to identify the eight areas of waste and understand how to
eliminate them, and you will understand how applying Lean principles can improve your bottom line.

Who Should Attend
Business and manufacturing leaders and anyone who would like to understand the basic Lean concepts
and start on the road to Lean Manufacturing. Companies that are interested in reducing their inventory,
improving their overall quality, improving their on-time delivery performance, improving their
productivity and lowering their manufacturing costs.
