Creating Mixed Model Value Streams

Description

This program addresses the real world complexity of implementing Lean in a mixed model plant. It is aimed at anyone trying to make improvements beyond a basic value stream map, from selecting a product family to scheduling or dealing with customer demand. The seminar will teach participants how to implement a Lean value stream in a way that everyone will understand, to create flow through the workers when products have different cycle times, and to set up a loading and leveling plan that requires visual schedules at different intervals. 

Suitable for: Factory and production managers, merchandisers, planners and industrial engineers
