Principles of Lean for High-Mix Low-Volume Manufacturing

November 6-7, 2017 | 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
(.8 CEU)

 

INTRODUCTION TO THE CLASS
The core of this class is Lean. Lean is based on the Toyota Production System (TPS). This highly sought after management model has been adopted successfully by many industries. Lean organizes manufacturing and logistics to design out overburden and inconsistency while reducing waste. Waste can be in several forms such as overproduction, writing, transportation, over-processing, inventory, defective products, and poorly-utilized employees.

Originally, the TPS was designed for low-mix high-volume (LMHV) product assembly. However, in this class we will show you how to modify and adapt it to your HMLV (high-mix low-volume) manufacturing process. Examples of high-mix low-volume (HMLV) manufacturers are:

CLASS DESCRIPTION
This class will teach JobshopLean, a modified approach to implement the same Principles of Lean (Source: www.lean.org/WhatsLean/Principles.cfm). JobshopLean utilizes Industrial Engineering practices and methods inspired by the simple, intuitive and proven methods of the Toyota Production System. However, instead of relying on the cumbersome manual methods and tools of Lean, JobshopLean uses computer-aided solution approaches to overcome the challenges of implementing Lean in high-mix low-volume facilities. JobshopLean focuses on the following strategies:

CLASS PREREQUISITES
An attendee should (a) be working for a high-mix low-volume manufacturer, (b) be reasonably conversant with Lean (as based on the Toyota Production System) and (c) have prior experience in implementing Lean. Examples of high-mix low-volume manufacturers would be those that have SIC (Standard Industrial Classification) codes such as 20xx, 23xx, 24xx, 25xx, 31xx, 34xx, 35xx, 36xx, 37xx, 38xx and 39xx. In addition, this class has valuable takeaways for industry professionals with the following job titles:
