Students will understand what Lean is, define the value stream and standard work, recite the seven wastes and begin to identify them in processes, and contrast value-added vs. non-value-added activity.

Lean vs. traditional management, understand and apply The Five Whys tool, describe the Plan-Do-Check-Act Cycle (PDCA), and learn management concepts that create an effective Lean organization.

Define, implement and monitor results of 5S, point of use and visual controls. See how workplace organization eliminates waste. Learn ways to standardize and sustain improvements.

Know the difference between flow and batch, why we strive for one piece flow. Students engage in a fun and popular simulation to learn how flow is established in an organization.
