Meeting today's manufacturing challenges demands a lean enterprise - streamlining product design and manufacturing by applying lean manufacturing principles, concepts, and techniques. The primary focus of this effort is the continuous elimation of waste in the company's business processes. Implementing lean practices involves changing a work area or a business process to maximize efficiency, improve quality and safety, eliminate unnecessary motion and inventory, and save time and resources. Participants also engage with real-life scenarios from the hands-on factory simulation throughout the day!
