With rising costs, shrinking pools of skilled workers, and shifts in global supply chains, the quest to find new ways of “doing more with less” is on every manufacturer's priority list. But why is it that so many manufacturers struggle with foundational Lean components?
Building a strong Lean foundation requires everyone involved to understand the goals, the plan, and the outcomes. In this webinar, Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt, Michael Parent, shares his experience in working with manufacturers on how to identify gaps in existing Lean programs, and what is needed to build a solid foundation for organization-wide continuous improvement.
Operations and Quality leaders will learn:
What foundational Lean pillars are commonly missed and why
How to identify waste in current processes, and steps for improvement
The answer to the “improving downtime means increased operational expense” argument
