Topics Covered

This two-day master class will focus on the application of lean principles and the Toyota Production System (TPS) to sectors outside of automotive. The course will go beyond theory to discuss how lean thinking can be implemented and sustained within a company. This course brings together Shinka Management’s core theory and case studies relating to the Toyota Production System, 5S, Standard Work and Visual Management, together with coverage of kanban and improvement suggestion schemes.

Day One
- TPS principles
- Continuous Improvement and Kaizen
- 5S
- Employee Suggestion Schemes

Day Two
- Standard Work Analysis and Charting
- Time Studies and Work Sampling
- Visual Management
- Kanban

Three video factory tours will be provided of facilities in Japan to demonstrate key theory and concepts covered.

Participants are provided with a workbook with all slides, and a certificate of completion.

Who is this for?

This master class is designed for senior managers and lean practitioners interested in fostering a culture of continuous improvement within their organisation. You will learn first-hand about how process improvement is achieved within Japan’s leading companies, and more importantly, how to implement these practices within your operations.

Whilst the fundamental theory of lean manufacturing is covered making this suitable for those new to lean, the focus on implementation practices makes this training course equally relevant to experienced lean practitioners.

Particularly relevant sectors include manufacturing, food and beverage, mining, wholesale & retail trade, logistics and transport.
