Using Lean to Perfect Organizational Processes

In today's competitive environment, complacency stifles success. So manufacturing and service organizations must constantly pursue perfection to retain their customers and market share. Lean methodology enables organizations to increase profitability through continuous improvement and the elimination of waste. This course introduces four powerful Lean tools for optimizing perfection and quality in a manufacturing or service organization. You'll learn how to apply 5S and Hoshin Kanri to organize workplaces and meet strategic objectives. You'll also learn about jidoka strategies for problem-solving as well as standard work practices for improving efficiency and eliminating waste.

Learning Objectives
  • Match the steps in the 5S process to the activities they involve
  • Match steps in the PDCA cycle to actions that would be carried out at each step
  • Match the strategies for using Hoshin Kanri to the stages of a project
  • Sequence examples of activities that occur during the jidoka process
  • Identify success factors for implementing the principles of standard work
  • Match different waste types with standard work strategies for eliminating waste

Using Lean to Reduce Waste and Streamline Value Flow

One of the most effective ways to increase the profitability of any organization is to eliminate waste. Identifying and eliminating the seven types of wastes, or muda, is one of the core principles of Lean Manufacturing. In this course, you'll define what waste is, discover where it exists, and what causes it. You will examine various aspects of muda, continuous flow, line balancing and the concept of value and non-value-add. Additionally, you'll discover practical and simple Lean tools and strategies for dealing with each type of waste to improve overall company performance and quality.

Learning Objectives
  • Classify production activities as value-add, non-value-add, or necessary non-value-add
  • Identify strategies for eliminating waste caused by overproduction and inventory
  • Identify strategies for eliminating motion, waiting, and transportation waste
  • Identify elimination strategies for waste caused by overprocessing and defects
  • Match cycle time and takt time to their descriptions
  • Identify the final three steps for balancing a production line

Applying Value Stream Mapping in Lean Business

Processes are a part of every business. It is important to graphically depict these processes so areas of waste can be identified and eliminated, creating a more efficient, profitable, and lean organization. This course covers how to create and interpret both current and future-state value stream maps and to recognize how a value stream map is used to improve an organization's processes. The course will also cover ways to identify sources of waste and areas of bottlenecks, as well as how to balance the production line through line balancing and push systems.

Learning Objectives
  • Recognize the key objectives of value stream mapping
  • Sequence the steps in the value stream mapping process
  • Identify the types of data required to create a current-state value stream map
  • Match the symbols used in the mapping process to the data they represent
  • Identify sources of waste in the current-state map
  • Identify process blocks in a current state map using cycle time and takt time
  • Recognize the features of a pull system for future state mapping

Using Lean to Improve Flow and Pull

Whether you work in a manufacturing or service environment, the success of your business depends on the efficiency of its processes and how well they respond to customer demand. If you're looking to increase production or improve quality of service, your focus should be on eliminating waste. Waste can be caused by many factors, such as untidy workspaces and surplus inventory, or inefficient distribution of work. Using the best blend of Lean tools and techniques for your organization can make your processes smoother and your workspaces tidier. This course introduces four robust Lean techniques. You'll explore the visual workplace and its tools for improving communication. You'll learn about using Just-in-time and Kanban techniques to establish a pull system that paces production with the rate of actual product demand. Finally, you'll learn about how line balancing can be used to distribute work evenly so that you have the optimal number of workers working just to takt time.

Learning Objectives
  • Identify the goals of the visual workplace
  • Match tools used in the visual workplace with their definitions
  • Identify key components of a successful implementation of just-in-time
  • Sequence the five steps involved in implementing a kanban system
  • Identify the goals of line balancing
  • Calculate takt time
