Setup Reduction

December 10th 2019 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

Excellent workshop for machine operators! Send teams to learn how to reduce setup times and eliminate waste on virtually any operation or machine. Participants will learn the tools necessary to conduct a setup reduction event. These tools will then be applied to a simulated process, where they will identify wastes, make improvements and track. Participants are asked to record a video of a machine set up to include footage from the last good piece of the previous product/run to the first good piece of the next product/run. This would include all the “tear-down” process of the current product/run as well as the preparation work involved with the new product/run (material handling, paperwork, tool changeover, etc..). A .mov file format works best. Send the video to ma@mfrall.com by December 6.

Standard Work

December 17th 2019 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

“Without Standard Work, there can be no improvement.” This statement is a central truth of the Toyota Production System. Standard work defines the current best work process. It is the baseline for continuous improvement and is a tool used in auditing processes. Therefore, conformance to standard work contributes to the results you need to stay competitive, but is something we really don’t want to do. Until you can apply repeatable standard work successfully, improvements will yield less than their full potential and backsliding will be prevalent.

Visual Management & 5S Improvements

January 29th 2020 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

Customers, employees and suppliers can tell a well-run plant and office without a narrated tour. The visual clues are everywhere. Visual management and 5S is a straight-forward approach that impacts your customer and employee image, productivity and sales. The many facets of visual management and 5S can allow employees to show pride and organization in their area, give them performance feedback, provide incentive to hit their goals, illustrate what is expected of them and recognize a job well done. These techniques can help overcome language and reading barriers and boost learning retention too.

Value Stream Mapping

It identifies individual process steps where waste can be removed. This hands-on workshop will provide you with the information and experience that is necessary to start implementing value stream mapping on the shop floor and in the office. Participants will be working in a simulated manufacturing plant and learn to apply lean manufacturing techniques to remap the future state of their processes.
