Description

This course is all about improving your manufacturing system performance by reducing or eliminating waste in the manufacturing and supporting the process by applying lean system thinking simple, powerful lean tools and techniques.

This course is structured with basic understandings of lean, lean manufacturing, and lean system thinking in any business environment.  I have clarified some of the misconceptions of lean in the manufacturing environment. Also explained broadly, how the cost of product and delivery lead time could be reduced by identifying waste or non-value added activities in the value chain. Also discussed the practical difficulties in implementing a lean journey, the reason for failure in some of the organization and listed out the prerequisites for implementing lean system thinking in any organization.

To get confidence to implement Lean initiative in your  in your organization irrespective of  your industry background, I have given real case study examples of lean success case studies and its  impact on business profitability in various manufacturing industries

This course is beneficial if you struggle to improve your operational productivity in your organization.
