Organizations today grapple with rising operational costs, increasingly demanding customers, variation in demands and short lead times. What the organization needs today is the agility and flexibility to cater to ever changing customer needs while at the same time focusing its resources on value-added products and services that are sought after by customers.

AGILE PRODUCTION WITH VALUE ADD PRINCIPLES – That is what Lean is about.  Lean provides the solution to many of the above challenges. Manufacturers, healthcare providers, financial institution, airlines, software developers and service providers around the world have found the Lean approach to be effective in transforming their organizations to a different level of effectiveness and efficiency while meeting customer needs without cutting back on quality and performance.

This training will provide participants with a comprehensive overview of the PRINCIPLES, ROADMAP  and TECHNIQUES vital to transform a traditional organization to a Lean one.  In addition, participants would have hands-on learning experience on how it is possible ‘To Do More with Less, through the Relentless Elimination of Wasteful Practices and Non-Value-Added Activities’ and thereby, achieve what is valued – good business results!

Special note to Automotive Industry Manufacturers: As per the IATF 16949:2016 requirements clause 7.1.31, organizations that intend  to be certified to IATF 16949:2016 are required to practice synchronous  material flow and total productive maintenance, which are among the key principles of Lean manufacturing. Therefore, this programme provides a good foundation into the understanding of Lean and how it is applied to comply to the requirements of the standard.

This programmes aims to :
  • Explain what is Lean, its purpose and benefits
  • Provide an overview of how the Lean methodology can bring the organization towards business excellence

Upon completion of the programme, the participants will be able to:
  • Comprehend the concept and principles of Lean
  • Identify opportunities for waste elimination in their organisations
  • Grasp what a Value Stream is and be able to chart the current and ideal future state Value Stream
  • Identify lean improvement opportunities and project priorities
  • Re-design their Value Streams and be focused on value-added activities.
