Lean Manufacturing Level One Certification

September 27 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

$1495.00

Lean Manufacturing Level One Certification is a comprehensive series of workshops that introduces lean principles. Participants learn to distinguish value-added from non-value added activities to eliminate costly waste. As a great starting point for an individual’s and company’s Continuous Improvement journey, the Level One Certification is a pragmatic, “hit the ground running” hands-on approach that applies acquired workshop knowledge to the workplace. Upon completion, each candidate will learn how to “discover” improvement opportunities within an organization and how to capitalize on them in a team based format to create real value through reduced costs, increased cash flow, and improved customer satisfaction.

Upon completion the graduate will be able to:

  • Understand how to recognize and eliminate waste through the cycle of PLAN-DO-CHECK-ACT
  • Know how to determine value added, non-valued-added, and necessary non-value-added activities
  • Identify the value stream, how it’s mapped, and how to identify the areas that require improvement
  • Develop a road map and an implementation plan
  • Understanding and apply lean tools such as value stream mapping, workplace organization, change management, teaming and kaizen methodology
  • Turn data into actionable information in order to quantify problems and prioritize countermeasures
  • Understand “KATA” methodology and how to use a structured approach to coaching that drives continuous improvement thinking and acting down to the contributor level
