How It Works
The workshop requires an intense two days where participants are totally committed to workshop tasks.
1. In the first session we explain the key areas of the lean manufacturing assessment, why they are important, what data is required, and how to format the data and information.
2. Team members pursue various assignments and
share the results.
3. At a second session we discuss the results and agree on additional data needs or changes.
4. At a final conference, we discuss the meaning and implications of the information.
5. We develop plans for moving forward.
- Identify Problems and Opportunities
- A deeper understanding of key issues,
- Implementation Plan & consensus on that plan
