Lean work cells and lines are critical in restructuring operations for work flow. This workshop focuses on the design of these cells and the systems needed to support their effective operation. Participants will design, implement and operate realistic cells in simulation exercises. We will also pay special attention to logistics support systems and daily management strategies following the jidoka principle. This workshop is usually 4 full, interactive days.
This workshop is designed for operations leaders with a strong background in lean fundamentals. The principles, however, are equally applicable to any work environment, especially healthcare clinical operations and emergency departments, surgery centers and services such as claims processing, or sales order processing. We can conduct this workshop using example from your organization given a few short weeks of preparation time.
