BLS-101 Basic LEAN Production System
Schedule and Hours
Lean principles have come a long way over the past 300 years. From Benjamin Franklin’s early ideas, to Henry Ford’s work in the 1920’s and the Toyoda precepts in the 1930’s, to Jeffery Liker’s publication of The Toyota Way in 2004, Lean processes have evolved from a simple concept to a set of widely used best practices. This two-day course will give participants the foundation to begin implementing Lean process improvement tools in their workplace.
The fundamental philosophy behind Lean Manufacturing is to provide superior quality products for more Customers at a significantly lower price and to contribute to a more prosperous society. It is important to build a Company production system based on this philosophy.
