Lean Manufacturing Training

Lean manufacturing is not new, dating back to the 20th century when large-scale assembly line manufacturing was beginning and there was a need for efficiency, consistency and speed.

But it wasn’t until the Toyota Production System (TPS) introduced lean manufacturing into its production process that the business world began taking a serious look at lean manufacturing.

Today, many organizations either implement lean manufacturing or are considering it, especially in an era of rapidly rising manufacturing costs.

And it’s no wonder. Lean manufacturing has a plethora of benefits. In general a lean manufacturing approach should improve everything from lower levels of inventory to improved supplier relations.

Lean manufacturing is also used to:

  • Improve delivery performance
  • Develop better customer satisfaction
  • Improve employee morale and involvement
  • Improve quality performance with fewer defects and rework
  • Initiate faster development
  • Operate with fewer machines and process breakdowns
  • Operate with less space required

A lean manufacturing approach often becomes a reality for organizations when overhead needs cutting or stakeholders insist on it.

It’s important to understand that implementing lean manufacturing may seem like a hassle at first, but lean manufacturing has considerable proven benefits, all of which should improve an organization’s bottom line.

What it comes down to is this: Lean removes waste. Waste is generally broken down into seven distinct areas:

  • Transport
  • Inventory
  • Motion
  • Waiting
  • Over-Processing
  • Overproduction
  • Defects

All of these wastes have a direct impact on your costs, they are all non-value adding operations, operations that your customer would not be happy to pay for and add no value to the product or service that you provide.

Studies prove that we only add value for around 5% of the time within our operations, the remaining 95% is waste. Imagine if you could remove that 95% wasted time and effort, what would it do for your operations?

Lean Manufacturing Training Course by Tonex

Lean manufacturing training covers the concepts and techniques of Lean and Lean Management and that how you can apply those in your own business.

Lean manufacturing helps to provide more value for the customers at a lower cost and shorter time. Lean manufacturing cuts the extra steps between the customer order and delivering the product, resulting in faster delivery and less waste. Lean manufacturing training teaches you how to continuously seek out for waste resources and once they are found, how to eliminate them throughout the entire enterprise and chain value.

Why Do You Need Lean Manufacturing Training?

Every business activity is considered an operation system. Therefore, the concept of cutting out wastes can be applied to any activity in order to accomplish a greater performance.

Eliminating sources of waste will cause shorter time frame, lower costs, reduced inventory, greater quantity, and higher return on assets.
