Principles of Lean (Online Class)
July 14 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am
Introduction to Lean Principles
A lean facility produces just what is needed, when it is needed with no additional staff, costs or time. Waste is not easy to see, so it’s harder to find! Learn the skills necessary to apply Lean techniques to reduce waste and improve process efficiency. Gain a practical understanding of Lean continuous improvement techniques and how to reduce paperwork, errors, and processing time.
In this course participants will learn:
- How to start the Lean journey

- How mistake proofing can help your facility operate more efficiently.
