Required Training Classes

3P Training:

The Production Preparation Process “3P” is a dynamic methodology that allows teams to achieve radical improvement, while try-storming. Teams can leverage this tool in the design of facilities, equipment, processes, products, web sites and services. This hands-on workshop will change your perspective about what can be accomplished with Lean tools. The goal is to always minimize capital while maximizing ideas.

At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  1. Effectively build a 3-dimensional model
  2. Objectively quantify opportunities (current state)
  3. Model 7 different future state options

Employee Lean Training:

Waste is omnipresent in every manufacturing process. It is also invisible. From the receipt of materials to shipping, it is hidden, in every equipment, machine and production line, in front of every employee using a “normal operation” disguise. It had been existing for such a long time that we need a different set of glasses to identify it and a different mindset to get rid of it.

This highly interactive session will provide the participants with the ability to spot waste and basic tools to eliminate it. Topics covered in this session are:

  1. What is Lean
  2. History of Lean Six Sigma
  3. Mechanic of change
  4. 5S
  5. Visual Workplace

At the end of each session, participants will be able to:

  1. Classify process steps according to their value.
  2. Identify the eight (8) types of waste.
  3. Execute a plan to keep an area clean and organized.
  4. Use of proper signals, indicators, and controls to improve the process performance.
