 LEAN Certificate Program:

Make yourself a more valuable empolyee!  The core idea of the LEAN system is to: The core idea is to maximize customer value while minimizing waste. Simply, lean means creating more value for customers with fewer resources.” 

 

The four courses that make up the LEAN Certificate Program are taught in sequence beginning with "Introduction to LEAN Management" and followed in sequence by: the second course "Value Streams; Kaizen; Theory of Constraints"; third course "Continuous Flow; Total Productive Maintenance; Mistake Proofing"; and finally the fourth course, "Creating Level Pull, Kanban, Just-In-time and Demand Flow and Material".

  "Introduction to LEAN Management"

The first course consists of topics for LEAN overview and 5S/visual workplace.  Students will gain a full understanding of: what LEAN manufacturing is; the core disciplines of LEAN; the terms used in LEAN Manufacturing; the history behind LEAN; how LEAN benefits companies; the differences between LEAN and traditional roles of manufacturing; the 5S items and how they benefit the workplace, and be able to recognize waste in the workplace. 

"Value Streams; Kaizen; Theory of Constraints"

The second course consists of topics for LEAN Value Streams and Value Stream mapping; Kaizen; Theory of Constraints.  Students will gain a full understanding of: Value Streams and be able to identify Value Streams; the difference between current and future states; how to implement change and see roadblocks; how to and be able to draw a Value Stream map; what Kaizen is; the core disciplines; types of tools used during Kaizen Blitz; the rules implemented doing Kaizen Blitz; value addeed, non-value added required; the five steps of theory of constraints; drum buffer rope; evaporating cloud method; batch size problem; chain analogy; issues with TOC, and measurements. 

"Continuous Flow; Total Productive Maintenance; Mistake Proofing"

The third course consists of topics for LEAN Continuous Flow; Total Productive Maintenance; Mistake Proofing. After completing this class, students will fully understand: what Total Productive Maintenance is; the origins of TPM; TPM benefits for Lean; types of Maintenance Strategies; the principles of the overall equipment effectiveness; how to Implement TPM; Mistake Proofing, and Creating Continuous Flow. 

"Creating Level Pull, Kanban, Just-In-time and Demand Flow and Material"

The fourth course consists of topics for Creating Level Pull, Kanban, Just-In-time and Demand Flow and Material. After completing this class, students will fully understand: creating level pull; how to identify problems of inventory in Lean; the objective of Just-In-time; the principles of JIT and its benefits; Kanban and how it is used; how to identify the Kanban squares; the Level Pull system; three elements of Standardized Work; how to implement TAKT Time; Production Smoothing / Leveling; the plan for every part; developing a purchased-part market; designing the delivery route and information management system, and sustaining and improving.
