Event description

Description

It is possible to do more with less, which is more important in Alberta's economy today than ever before.

By understanding the principles of Lean, business owners and managers can begin to lead change in their organization, get employees engaged in solving problems, and begin to integrate continuous improvement thinking into their corporate culture. All of that will result in improved productivity and a happier customer.

In this half-day, interactive workshop, you will familiarize yourself with the principles of Lean by operating workstations along an assembly line in a fictional aircraft plant. Through the visual, hands-on simulation, you will:

  • See how Lean changes can dramatically improve productivity
  • Understand the foundation, principles, and goals of a Lean organization
  • Gain a general understanding of Lean tools including kaizen, continuous improvement, 5S, recognizing waste, pull and one-piece flow, and much more.

No matter what your organization does, Lean will help you do it better. Lean methodology is being applied in a broad range of enterprises including manufacturing, processing, construction, health care, engineering, banking, and government services.
