Root Cause Analysis

June 23rd 2020 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.

Setup Reduction

July 15th 2020 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. Participants are asked to record a 10-15 minute 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 March 25.

Standard Work

July 23rd 2020 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.

Value Stream Mapping

October 13th 2020 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. Original date was June 2.

Measuring the Right Things.

November 17th 2020 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! Attendees 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.
