ASCM (APICS) is the world's leading association for supply chain management, providing education and certification programs.
Many companies are investing time and money into making their manufacturing and distribution systems leaner. They are looking for the systems and tools that will transform their operations into the world class competitive machine they know exists, but is hidden in the layers of waste that pervade most companies. Two of the most valuable tools available to these companies are Kaizen and Kaizen Blitz. Kai means change and zen means good. Kaizen Blitz, also known as five days and a night, is a major change tool.
This class looks briefly at how “what to change” is decided and then works through several issues with making change happen. The class is interactive with the participants working in teams to create improvements using a common problem as the target. We will look at what waste is and how to spot it in our own operations and then how to determine if it can be eliminated immediately or if we need to continue to endure it until we can plan an implement its elimination.
In this One-day seminar we will study how Lean concepts can be implemented in your operation to improve the value that will be delivered to your customer. We will look at methods to improve productivity and communication. We will work through exercises that will improve the value of our model delivery system.
Major Topics of the Day:
o Implementing change in your Operations
o Team configurations and management
o Slow and Steady Approaches versus Major Changes
o Implementing change in your office areas
