We focus on teaching managers and engineers how to do more with less using engineered manufacturing systems and daily waste clean-up activities. Our specially designed learning environment includes realistic simulation exercises, real-life case studies and time for reflection in order to permanently absorb what’s been learned. We engage students in a creative manner with an intensive and practical program which, once applied in the factory, will lead to significant improvement and performance gains. Our program covers the entire value stream process of the operations. |
