Participants will learn about cell design, work balance, single piece flow, standard work, point of use storage, visual controls and performance measurement. Application of cell design techniques will take place in a shop floor environment.
During the workshop the students will apply what they are learning to a particular product. They will gather data on the manufacturing process and then practice the steps of cell design for the product.
This workshop is designed to give participants the knowledge and information they need to design and implement single-piece flow work cells.
- The workshop is designed for up to 12 people.
- The workshop is 2 full days for a total of 16 hours.
- Participants should have completed a basic training course in Lean Manufacturing principles such as Lean 101 or equivalent.
