This course is designed for all levels of maintenance personnel, particularly maintenance workers, supervisors, planners; managers, and maintenance engineers can also take it. The course works best when people from different levels, jobs or plants take it together. A diversity of opinions and experiences is desired.
Our promise for this program is that your LEAN MAINTENANCE teams will leave here ready to identify and reduce waste. Typically this results in your organization saving money, resources, and increasing uptime of your productive assets.
These changes themselves lead to additional benefits, including improvements in morale, benefits for corporate/community relationships and shareholder pride. Lean, in many cases, is green, not just for the financial payback but also in terms of reducing the corporate environmental footprint, thus raising corporate credibility among environmentally conscious consumers.
Our course teaches specific techniques for locating and attacking waste, and reducing costs of operation. The outcome of the session is a series of Lean projects ready for execution. The projects will be designed, prioritized and justified within some of the exercises during the workshop.
Lean projects frequently result in rapid paybacks, often creating noticeable improvements in days or weeks. Thus your investment in this training should be repaid almost immediately.
