Many organizations around the world have implemented lean production practices. Also referred to as the “Toyota Production System”, its aims to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of production processes. Its methods and tools help identify and eliminate activities that do not add value, such as overproduction, waiting, transporting, unnecessary inventory, inappropriate processing, excess motion and defects.
This seminar explores the different principles and tools of the lean approach and continuous improvement, using examples from various industries around the world. Participants will be invited to take part in a simulation illustrating the concepts of batch production vs one-piece-flow systems.
