What is Lean Thinking?

 

Lean thinking is a business operating system that maximizes customer value while minimizing waste. Lean thinking defines anything that does not add value for the customer as waste. The ultimate goal is to provide perfect value to the customer through a perfect value creation process that has zero waste. Lean thinking seeks this goal through waste elimination along entire value streams instead of just isolated points. The creation of new processes that require less human effort, less space, less capital, and less time. Lean thinking will improve the performance of any business in any industry.

Participants will learn how to reduce manufacturing lead times by 80%, reduce work in progress up to 90%, reduce floor space up to 75%, and improve quality up to 90%. The class consists of a combination of classroom learning and live simulation.

LEAN WAREHOUSE 101

Participants will learn the basic definitions of terms used in Lean Manufacturing, as well as 5S, Visual Controls, Facility Layout, Teams, Batch Size Reduction, Quality at the Source, POUS, and Pull Systems.

Lean Office™ w/ Live Simulation

The students will learn about and understand how to identify the eight forms of waste. The techniques for eliminating waste and creating improvement performance will be taught and practiced through the hands-on simulation.

STRATEGIC DEPLOYMENT

This process will result in

  • Defined company strategic goals
  • Business metrics that will drive desired performance and accurately reflect progress
  • An understanding of what conditions must be in place for a viable company-wide Lean initiative
  • A list of improvement events and company projects to achieve the strategic goals
  • A timeline of planned activity to execute the plan

LEAN & GREEN CERTIFICATION

The Lean and Green certification focuses on adapting Lean tools
broadly to environmental waste. Basic Lean tools (Value Stream Mapping, 5S, Eight Wastes, etc.) are introduced from the
perspective of the environment rather than the perspective of the customer, providing opportunities to reduce waste particularly in the area of overhead – that was previously inaccessible to Lean.
Participants will complete a real-world project over the course of training, and will meet individually with the instructor as a project coach. Participants are also expected to complete significant individual work on projects outside of class.

LEAN WASTE STREAM CERTIFICATION

The Lean Waste Stream certification focuses Lean tools specifically on the solid waste dimension of operations. The forensic analysis of waste streams provides the entry point for identifying problems that can be addressed through basic Lean tools (Value Stream Mapping, 5S, Eight Wastes, etc.).
Participants complete a real-world project over the course of training, and will meet individually with the instructor as a project coach. Participants are also expected to complete significant individual work on projects outside of class.

VALUE STREAM MAPPING

Participants will learn the basic techniques of creating a Value Stream Map. The students will practice on a text-book exercise and then will map a real process within their own company. On day 2, the students will learn the methodologies for applying Lean tools to eliminate waste in the value stream. The workshop concludes with the students drawing a future state map and writing an action plan for achieving that future state.

5-S WORKSHOP

Participants will learn the methodsof the 5S system and then apply what they have learned in a live situation in their own facility.

QUICK CHANGEOVER WORKSHOP

Participants will learn how to apply SMED and identify internal and external set-up operations. Participants will apply what they are learning to a machine in their company’s facility and will demonstrate the power of SMED to achieve a 30% improvement in changeover time in less than 2 days.

CELL FLOW WORKSHOP

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.

KANBAN WORKSHOP

Participants will learn about pull signals. Kanban is a Japanese word that means “sign or signal” and is used interchangeably to denote any visual system for signaling production activity. This course includes instruction in design and application of the pull system method throughout the supply chain.

TOTAL PRODUCTIVE MAINTAINANCE WORKSHOP

Participants will learn the terms and formulas connected with the TPM methodology. In addition, they will learn about the six types of waste that reduce equipment effectiveness. Participants will design the data collection methods and forms as they observe a machine. Also covered in this course are the formulas associated with the Operational Equipment Effectiveness calculation and information on how to use TPM as a tool for continuous improvement and employee empowerment.

TRAINING WITHIN INDUSTRY WORKSHOP

Standard work is one of the basic building blocks of a Lean Transformation, but many people will not realize the potential benefits without a strong, cogent training method. Under the guidance of a seasoned facilitator, the participants will learn the Job Instruction four- step method as developed in the Training Within Industry methodology.

DESIGN FOR MANUFACTURABILITY

This is a perfect course for any company with an Engineering Department. The techniques can be applied to new designs, or to simplify current products.
Design for Manufacturability is a methodology that can dramatically reduce the part numbers and complexity of engineered parts, weldments and assemblies. Engineers and designers learn techniques to simplify the designs, making the parts easier to cut, weld and assemble: yet get better characteristics from the finished product. Material costs and labor hours savings are quickly realized. During the workshop, they will review assembly processes during two practical exercises, and create action item list for changes to designs.

LEAN IMPLEMENTER CERTIFICATION

Participants in Lean Implementer will learn to facilitate the Lean efforts at the process level of the company. These classes are hands-on experiences that equip participants with the tools necessary to become a successful Lean Leader.

LEAN GREEN BELT

Lean Green Belt covers the principles, tools and applications of 5S, VSM, Plant Layout, Training within Industry, Mistake Proofing, Kaizens, QCO, TPM, Cellular Flow, Pull Systems, Lean Performance Measures, Leadership Roles, Strategic Planning, Lean Program Deployment and cultural challenges. Engaging exercises to apply the skills in a structured environment incorporate data collection forms, videos and case studies. A test is administered on the final day.

MEASURABLE MANAGEMENT

Measurable Management ® equips front line leaders with skills and tools to engage their employees in continuous improvement activity within the company. This course is also a perfect complement to the company’s ongoing process improvement initiatives (e.g. Six Sigma, Lean) and will result in a boost to those efforts. Participants will learn a set of management skills and will practice how to apply those in their own work place.

SIX SIGMA

In partnership with the University of Oklahoma Lean Institute, operating at the Norman campus, ISI offers Six-Sigma training, as well as 2 other unique Lean programs, Lean and Green Certification & Lean Waste Stream Certification, to further meet the needs of Oklahoma companies. The Six Sigma Certification can be held in an Open Enrollment format, in both OKC and Tulsa, or can be held on site for larger groups.

“Our entire customer service team, plus other key members, attended the Lean 101 class and held a value-stream mapping event with Industrial Solutions – ISI at our office to identify key processes in our Customer Service group that required improvement. As a result, our service has improved, our customers are happier, and our employees feel more empowered to identify and solve problems. A true win -win!”

Theory is good, but participants must be able to apply the principles.  Therefore, we conduct all training at a host client where participants experience real-life scenarios on the shop floor of a company that is engaged in a Lean initiative.

Our consultants are experts on a broad array of subjects, and can facilitate events on any of them, leading the process owners to achieve great gains.  The consulting philosophy at ISI derives from the fact that our consultants have spent more years actually working in industry rather than lean consulting.

“Our employee engagement is the best it’s ever been. Employees are gaining a level of satisfaction that makes them want to retire from the company although we are going through a down cycle. It’s not easy.  I would recommend ISI to any company that wants to have lean thinkers.

We would never be where we are today without ISI.”
