April 23: Lean manufacturing training workshop

From the Illinois Manufacturing Excellence Center (IMEC) and Prairie State College: 

This interactive workshop combines comprehensive classroom instruction with simulation of a production facility. The basic concepts of Lean manufacturing and the tools and methodology necessary to implement “lean” on the shop floor are demonstrated. Participants assume the role of production workers, applying lean tools to their individual workspaces and the entire product line. This learn-do technique, over four “shifts,” illustrates cause and effect relationships for each of the lean tools presented. Participants review methodology and lessons learned from previous shifts, deciding what and how to implement while working with realistic constraints such as available resources, cash flow, and resistance to change.
