Value Stream Mapping

February 20th 2019 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

Value Stream Mapping is one of the most important tools for lean manufacturing. It lays out a visual picture of the vision you and your employees have created for your more productive future. 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.

This workshop will provide the education and experience that is necessary for you to deploy rapid improvement teams at work. You will learn to measure what is important, gather the necessary resources, decide who does what, and set and accomplish a one week schedule for project completion. Most importantly, you will see how to accomplish more in less time than most teams take to agree on what they should be doing. This workshop is full. We have scheduled another Kaizen Rapid Improvement workshop on Thursday, April 18. Scroll to that workshop date to register.

Measuring the Right Things.

March 26th 2019 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

“You get what you measure” is a truism among managers. Therefore, it is of critical importance that you “measure the right things” to get the performance you desire. In this case, the intended outcome is performance improvement. So, don’t get caught in the trap of using historical accounting measures to measure and motivate current and future performance improvements! Participants should bring examples from your company of two successful and two not-so-successful measures for discussion that you would comfortable sharing with the group.

Setup Reduction

April 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 their progress.  Various options to “sustain the gains” achieved during the process will also be covered. To apply the tools to your own process, prior to the workshop you are asked to send the instructor a 10-15 minute video of a machine set up you would like to improve.

Lean Manufacturing Simulation

May 7th 2019 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

Attendees participate in an interactive business simulation game that demonstrates, in a practical manner, the application of lean principles.  They will be split into competing companies and will work on a simulated manufacturing floor, building product during four business cycles. Between each business cycle the competing company teams will have the opportunity to utilize the tools they learned in the workshop.

Root Cause Analysis

June 5th 2019 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

Does the desire to act overpower the need to understand? Understanding the problem, the process, the people and the distinctions between the types of causes are all stepping stones to effective root cause analysis to permanently eliminate problems from recurring. When structured methods and tools are used, this can be accomplished.

Standard Work

July 16th 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.
