Lean 2 Day Workshop

Organisation: Cairns Manufacturing Hub

Location: Barlow Park Conference Rooms, Cairns

Date: 18-19 March 2024

Time: 8am to 5pm both days


Event Information: 

The workshop is suitable for managers, supervisors and even operators on the shop floor.

Over a period of 2 days, the workshop highlights lean manufacturing and other related productivity improvement concepts, reinforced by the simulation of a series of manual processes (typically representing production or office processes) by assembling Lego bricks (i.e. “learning by doing”).

Several “Runs” will be conducted in the workshop, with participants progressively improving each run by changing the Lego simulation process according to the Lean principles introduced between each run.

Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) will be measured for each run, revealing quantitative improvements during the course of the Workshop.  The 2-Day Workshop will cover the following topics:  Waste reduction Value stream mapping (VSM) 5S workplace housekeeping and organisation Teamwork Set up reduction Pull systems (kanbans) Visual performance measurement (VPM) Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) Standard work Focused Improvement.
