Effective Lean Manufacturing

Course Overview:

Lean production is one of the most important approaches to the effective manufacturing. Companies are now starting to heavily rely on lean manufacturing principles for their better profitability as well as sustainability in the competitiative market to create waste-free, optimized product flow across the value stream, which is defined as all the activities, value-adding and non-value adding, required to bring a product from concept to launch and from order to delivery. In the ultimate future state of the value stream, each product flows from raw material to finished item to the ultimate customer without stops, interruptions or delays, and without non-value-adding steps or processing. In other words, minimal inventory exists to impede product flow, and there are no steps in the production process that are not adding value from the perspective of the customer.
