A Proven Internationally Valued Methodology At Your Disposal.  

Lean Management, or Lean Manufacturing , or simply Lean, is a way of thinking and working which has proven to be successful at many fortune 500 companies. It is a proven method to substantially drive down costs. For decades, the demand for Lean professionals in very high as can be inferred from job vacancy websites.  

We have set up our course so that it is easily accessible. By using ‘live digital writing and drawing’ we have tried to give you the feeling that the lecturer is sitting next to you and is providing you with private tutoring.  

Course Content  

This course starts out by explaining what Lean and Six Sigma are and how they are related. You will learn how to implement an efficient and responsive ‘pull production system.’ We will subsequently teach you how to identify and mitigate various non-value adding activities in your organization. This reduces your costs substantially and optimize your supply chain. Techniques to be discussed include Value Stream Mapping, Poka Yoke, SMED, 5S, Quality Function Deployment, Jidoka, Andon and Heijunka.   

At the end of this course, you will master Lean management skills. Browse the internet to see how many job vacancies require Lean knowledge as a prerequisite. The whole course is designed and taught by experienced university lecturers who teach in the Netherlands. The teaching style is designed to provide you with the experience of private tutoring.
