We can show you how to integrate continuous improvement into your manufacturing process that empowers both managers and employees to recommend and implement changes to improve overall operations and achieve greater efficiency.
Lean Methodologies is an interactive course combining classroom instruction with intensive hands-on experience on a simulated shop-floor to expose the weaknesses of traditional manufacturing concepts in a low volume, high mix and high volume, low variety mass production facility. Students experience working in a traditional environment that is gradually transformed into a world-class Lean facility.
Training Within Industry (TWI) is a set of standardized programs that teaches the essential skills needed by all supervisors and team leaders to help lead an organization through a Lean transformation and sustain it. The four TWI modules are:
Job Relations: Evaluating and taking proper action to handle people problems
Job Instructions: How to quickly teach people to do jobs correctly, safely, and conscientiously
Job Methods: Analyzing jobs to make the best use of resources currently available
Job Safety: Engaging employees to identify and eliminate potential workplace hazards
Less time to train new people. Being able to learn new methods to improve safety, service and communication for our customers. Being able to demonstrate an area that you train someone in.
The collaborative effort by everyone in training and working together for positive and demonstrated results.
Lean Management in the Fast Lane
This one-day event taught by MassMEP and race crew members from the Ken Bouchard “Drive to Victory Lane” race driver instruction and training school is a NASCAR learning experience for Building a Winning Culture. You will learn the basics of teamwork and leadership; focused on common goals, using the tools, equipment, processes and procedures used by a real NASCAR Modified Tour race team.
"The team from MassMEP, Gary and Mark, have helped us really engage our employees in our effort to streamline our operation as we build a sustainable business. A continuous improvement environment exists where one previously did not."
Meridian Industrial Group
This hands-on simulation is designed to introduce the participants to lean concepts, allow them to experience changes to a process, and motivate them to desire improvements in their pre-production processes. Office processes are composed of individual tasks. Processes are generally developed over years of time and normally contain steps that are no longer required. A lean office is an environment where each of these processes has been evaluated and streamlined for maximum efficiency. Lean is not just for the shop floor anymore.
