This 2 day workshop will teach you how to move and handle purchased parts from the receiving door to the shipping door. The focus is on designing and implementing a system that reliably supplies purchased parts to continuous-flow cells, small-batch processing, and traditional assembly lines. The design and management of all aspects of a comprehensive Lean material handling system are covered, including routing, kanban systems and parts markets, as well as sustaining and continuously improving the system.
Those who would benefit from attending this workshop include:
- Material handling and production control personnel, managers, supervisors, operations and support personnel, and change agents.
- Organizations that require purchased parts for production.
- Organizations that have had some experience implementing lean elsewhere in the organization.
Through instruction, discussion, case studies and hands-on workshop exercises, this workshop uses realistic factory examples to provide the concepts and the practical know-how you need to plan and implement the transition to a Lean system. The use of formulas, forms, rules and checklists are reviewed in detail, as are the detailed steps for the design and implementation of a parts database, parts markets, pull systems and optimized routes.
What You Will Learn
