Thanks to the highly experiential training methodology using mini workstations to produce electric motors, participants guide the company's transformation according to the Lean logic, learning how to manage the main processes in compliance with the time, cost and quality requirements of the market and applying the most appropriate methodological tools to different situations.
The Lean Transformation course is simulated in four rounds, divided into two days. Participants can experience first-hand how in traditionally organised companies, with production islands and a layout that is not always optimised, the 7 typical wastes of the lean methodology can be hidden: waiting times, stocks, material handling, overproduction, etc.
Participants learn how to measure and analyse the collected data using typical Lean Thinking methods and tools such as the Spaghetti Chart and the Value Stream Map with the aim of redesigning subsequent rounds and streamlining production and information processes.
During the different rounds, continuous improvement is implemented by working in teams:
At each of the 10 workstations, participants explore a topic related to applied 4.0 technologies. In addition, they can experiment with certain applications such as:
