Lean Management is a business system for organizing and managing product development, operations, suppliers, and customer relations. Organizations use lean principles, practices, and tools to create precise customer value—goods and services with higher quality and fewer defects—with less human effort, less space, less capital, and less time than the traditional approaches.
One of the primary focuses of lean management is to eliminate waste; that is, anything that does not add value to the final product gets eliminated. A second major focus is to empower people at lowest level, and make operational decisions at the lowest level possible.
Lean Management is about looking at the whole picture of all the processes that are required to deliver a product or service. It is about evaluating each step and ensuring that the step is Valuable, Capable, Available, Flexible and Adequate.
Lean Manufacturing has been successfully implemented and practiced in manufacturing industries like Textiles and Apparel, Automotive, Industrial Products, Furniture, Printing and Packaging, Consumer Products and Healthcare industries, Military and Service sector. Lean applies to non manufacturing settings just as strongly. Many of the most exciting breakthroughs are taking place in services as diverse as software development, banking, health, BPO and government.
This course will aim at explaining the concepts of lean management, learn about various tools used for implementing and the technicalities involved in order to reduce or eliminate waste, reduce lead time, cost and thereby increase productivity and profitability of the organization.
HOW PARTICIPANTS WILL BENEFIT:
Participants would be able to
i. Clearly understand Lean Concepts and Tools.
