The increasingly competitive global economy and heightened customer expectations have upped the pressures on manufacturing environments to design lean value streams that achieve Operational Excellence. But a lack of direction, time, or buy-in can hinder even the best intentions. This online training is the answer.

Learning Objectives

Using a complex, real life manufacturing example, course participants will learn how to:

  • Determine true product families in complex manufacturing environments.
  • Create continuous flow in a mixed model environment.
  • Calculate takt time for a mix of products.
  • Establish machine loading and EPEI for equipment.
  • Balance labor for a mix of products.
  • Create standard work for a mix of products with varying cycle times.
  • Set up and size first in, first out (FIFO) lanes.
  • Schedule the pacemaker.
  • Develop pitch.

Unlike traditional courses on applying continuous improvement, this course teaches how to design flow step-by-step in order to create a mixed model pacemaker capable of flowing a mix of parts with varying cycle times and levels of customer demand through the same value stream, all at the pull of the customer.
