course objectives

Dear Delegate(s),

The Lean Philosophy is changing the way organisations operate. No longer stuck in the paradigm of "mass" thinking, many manufacturing enterprises have tried to adopt some portions of the Toyota Production System, the Lean road. Many have failed. Many have rushed off, taken a course and pronounced themselves LEAN. Yet very few have tested the depths of overall performance enhancement and added competitiveness possible with a complete change of paradigms in the "lean" direction.

Research by Gallup has uncovered that less than 30% of employees are truly engaged in their jobs. Lean Thinkers have long shown that an additional 25-40% of the work done by most organisations is waste or non-value added. This means that 40% of every payroll dollar is easily lost.

My personal investigations have come to the conclusion that the manufacturing sector is polluted by an astonishing 35% of completely wasted labour. Can that be afforded any longer?

This course will be a shocking course for many of you. Because it demystifies all traditional principles of the first industrial revolution on which the majority of manufacturing enterprises, still today, are built or around which they operate. By presenting in rather great detail the philosophy of the second industrial revolution and the main tools and disciplines readily available to all manufacturing enterprises to perform in an "excellent" status, this course is a door-opener to lean practices for whoever is: ready to listen to the message - prepared to abandon obsolete principles, formulas and approaches - willing to get to "lean" status.
This course will prove that competitiveness today can no longer be achieved by merely cutting costs or revamping technology: because cutting costs has a floor, while performance improvement through maximisation of value-added and waste elimination has no ceiling -and because technology alone does not generate the levels of output value enterprises and organisations need to tackle the challenges of the new millennium.

I hope to see you there, best regards

Dr Carlo

In today's "global market", featuring vanishing borders and hot competition, manufacturers should adopt an integrated approach to modern ways of competing and performing.

This course is designed to give participants a practical, "hands-on" presentation of the Lean Manufacturing discipline, addressed to dramatic improvements in productivity, quality and reactivity to clients' needs and expectations (World Class Performance status).

Specific objectives of this course are:
- To highlight the vital importance of a global attention to "value" in the manufacturing industry.
- To make participants aware of the Value Adding Management and Systematic Elimination of Waste principles, and furnish hints and practical guidelines for their practical implementation in the manufacturing industry.
- To make participants acquainted with Lean Manufacturing, Flow Production and Cell Manufacturing principles, by studying practical cases of successful implementation
- To give participants practical criteria to identify, in their own manufacturing concern, those processes in which Lean Manufacturing techniques could be implemented smoothly
- To show the relationship between Lean Manufacturing and allied disciplines such as Total Quality Management, Total Productive Maintenance, Achieving Quick Change-Over, 6 Sigma, Value Stream Management and Total Employee Involvement

This course is very interactive and supplemented with abundant practical exercises and case studies
"a very thorough and comprehensive programme on all aspects of lean manufacturing"

target audience

General Managers - Operations Managers - Production Managers, Planners, and Supervisors - Quality Managers and Plant Managers from manufacturing enterprises.
