Lean for Job Shops online training is designed specifically to help Job Shops adapt, prioritize and apply Lean Manufacturing tools and techniques to a Job Shop environment. Participants will learn how to implement Lean Manufacturing practices to complement the realities of their unique job shop environment.
The Lean for Job Shops online training has two units. Unit 1, Adapting Lean to Job Shops, starts by exploring the "Realities of Job Shops," the related consequences to the operation and outlines a three-phased approach to address the "realities." In Unit 2, Lean Job Shop Practices, five significant action plans for a Lean Job Shop environment are presented as a series of interdependent activities. These, coupled with trend analysis measures, will lead to success in making Job Shops lean and (more) productive.
