Three Ontario manufacturers share their experiences from putting Lean methods into practice.
They review the specific Lean Tools used to engage the employees at each organization, along with the coaching and mentoring they provided to their teams as they solved safety, quality, productivity, and time to market challenges.
Specific tools (and lessons learned) that will be shared:
- Value Stream Mapping (for production, quality, and office processes)
- How to train and coach supervisors for supporting and sustaining improvement
- Employee based Continuous Improvement & Problem Solving tools
