Why Lean Manufacturing

A new approach for Production Management

The Lean management system (founded on the Toyota Production System) is a management philosophy which shortens the time between the customer order and the product shipment by eliminating all inefficiencies (sources of waste).

This it is ultimately reflected in terms of quality, delivery, cost and greater team morale, making a company capable to overcome bigger challenges and their competitors.

Workshop Highlights:

This 3 days workshop is a practical way to present the Lean principles concepts and its implementation in the shop floor (Gemba) from our host plant.
