Course Overview

Lean Manufacturing Course focusses on a systematic approach to improve a manufacturing system using lean manufacturing techniques. Most of the programs on Lean focus on Lean Principles but not on the application.

This course is very practical and has addressed challenges for a manufacturing practitioner who wants to start implementing Lean but does not know where to start from and how to implement Lean tools. The focus is on manufacturing case studies and examples, relevant tools, templates and application of the same. This course connects contemporary manufacturing practices with Lean Practices.

Why Lean Manufacturing Course? A lean manufacturing course is recommended for all manufacturing professionals irrespective of their current role. They just need to have a desire to improve processes and systems in their organisations using lean manufacturing methodology and lean tools. Lean is about creating more value for the customer by reducing waste in the plant and manufacturing system.

This Zoe training course will empower you with complete know-how of lean manufacturing tools and how they can be implemented to improve utilization, efficiency, productivity and process velocity.

The course will help you learn the skills needed to implement the methodology through lean tools and templates. By undertaking this course, you will get the required confidence to implement Lean Manufacturing Principles in your plant.

Course Objectives

The main objective of this training course is to build lean manufacturing skills among manufacturing professionals with—

  • detailed knowledge and information about lean manufacturing tools and their impact on Plant Productivity and Product Cost
  • the required skills to understand and/or audit lean implementation maturity in your plant across various departments in different processes to check for gaps and advice accordingly
  • tools and techniques in the efforts to introduce lean practices within the organisation
  • a sense of achievement for contributing to organisational scalability and hence growth, in turn, demonstrating potential, talent and encouraging additional opportunities for higher roles and responsibilities
