Lean Basics

About Lean Basics:

TPS (Toyota Production System), now known as The Toyota Way - since it has applications beyond production - has many offspring. The best known among them is ‘Lean manufacturing’. The term ‘Lean’ was popularised by the book, ‘The Machine that Changed the World’ by Womack, Jones & Roos published in the early 1990’s. We bring to you the fundamental thinking behind the transition from the traditional ‘mass manufacturing’ paradigm to today’s ‘Lean’ paradigm. This change in thinking originates from understanding of ‘waste’ as reverse of ‘value adding’. As organisations peel off layers of fat (‘waste’) from manufacturing processes, they begin their transition to ‘Lean’.

Begin the exciting journey to Lean, by learning how to identify & systematically reduce ‘waste’ in our relentless quest for ‘waste free manufacturing’.

Topics Covered:
  • Introduction to Lean

  • Identifying ‘Value’ & ‘Waste’; & recognising ‘Flow’

  • Value Stream Mapping

  • Creating ‘Basic Stability

  • Facilitating Flow – Workstation Design, Cell Layout, Standard Work

  • Flow for mixed-model production – Quick Change-overs

  • From Flow to Pull – introduction to Kanban
