Activity-Based Learning • Create a Continuous Improvement Culture • Develop a Common Vocabulary • Map the Flow of Value • Explore Lean Principles and Tools • Learn to Eliminate Waste • Stay Competitive in Today’s Marketplace

Lean Office Simulation

Participants will be introduced to the “8 wastes” and Lean principles used to reduce these wastes in an office setting.  Participants will practice implementing these tools to improve the flow of value in an office simulation.

Lean Manufacturing Simulation

Participants will be introduced to the “8 wastes” and Lean principles used to reduce these wastes in a manufacturing setting.  They will practice implementing these tools to improve the flow of value in an airplane manufacturing simulation.

Value Stream Mapping Simulation

Participants will be able to create a visual map of the process steps in the current flow of value.  The current state map will be used to create a future state vision and an action plan for achieving the future state.

5S Workplace Organization Simulation

Participants will be introduced to and practice lean workplace organization 5S principles:  Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain through a simulation.
