Complete theory, practice in a factory, transferral of the lecturers’ personal experience. Come and acquire new skills.
The course is part of the LEAN EXPERT certified programme.
An innovated form of training with high added value in both the online and factory variant.

Wherever there is a product for a customer, there is a value stream. Stream continuity is restricted by barriers created by the environment, technology, labour organisation and our own work. We’ll teach you techniques securing massive reductions in, or even complete deactivation of, these barriers.

We will focus in detail on fast production change techniques. We’ll teach you to implement classic SMED techniques, plus the new 3X and 1X progressive workshop tools. We’ll combine theory interpretation and practical training in prepared videos from actual situations. The interpretation is complemented by practical findings from workshops in the automotive, electrical engineering, construction, medicine, mechanical engineering and other industries. In the second block, we’ll be focusing on Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) from two perspectives. We’ll teach you how to implement TPM in your organisation the right way, and we’ll be looking at the effectiveness of maintenance processes through the eyes of Lean methodology. We’ll focus on key machine losses. We’ll deepen your knowledge of autonomous, preventive and predictive maintenance. We’ll teach you to analyse your maintenance activities and measure their productivity. And consequently how to streamline your maintenance activities and make them more productive. In the third block, we’ll give you information on fast problem solving (PPS), visualisation and standardisation. We’ll teach you to apply 5S to ensure an effective labour standardisation tool.

Practical courses in a factory

The active connection of the lectured theory and the immediate practical training in the operation of the host factory will allow you to learn the real implementation of the trained technique. We carefully select the host factories to provide a suitable environment for the lecture and at the same time be a motivation for your personal development.

The training takes place in the host factory in the full range of 3 days.

In the factory we carry out 3 practical workshops focused on quick changeover, preventive / autonomous maintenance and final visualization and standardization of the process.

We will prepare your workshops together. You do the analysis, you shoot the videos of the process. With the help of online techniques, we will control your progress, help with guidance and professional advice. We will help your team put together the final solution and standardization.
