Event Details

In this workshop, you’ll learn the basic principles of lean manufacturing and how to apply them through an activity that involves a fast-paced simulated production line. You’ll also learn about the eight wastes and lean techniques including 5S, standardized work, batch-size reduction, and visual signals. By the end of this day, the benefits of lean will be clearly apparent!

 

You will learn:

  • Define “lean” as it relates to manufacturing.
  • List and describe the eight wastes.
  • Describe standardized work, 5S, visual controls, plant layout, quick changeover, batch reduction, point of use storage, pull/Kanban, cellular flow, and total productive maintenance and how they fit into lean manufacturing.

 

Credits: Workshop qualifies for 0.8 CEUs (continuing education units) through Purdue University. There is a $15 processing fee to obtain your CEU transcript record. If you are interested in obtaining CEUs, you can prepay at registration or request an application form at the end of the session. Workshop also qualifies for 8 PDHs (professional development hours) through the Indiana State Board of Registration for Professional Engineers. You will be given a Certificate of Attendance to submit to the Board for these credits.
