  • Objectives

    • To identify the Lean projects to be implemented.
    • To use the collection of Lean tools: Value Stream Mapping, 5s, SMED, etc.
    • To map the value chain of each family of products
    • To measure the added value of a process.
    • To measure the results obtained.
  • Keywords

    Waste - Lean – Flow management – Added value - VSM.
  • The advantages

    • Adapting the tools in order to alternate between practical case studies and methodological supports.
    • Fun role-play activities : educational game.
  • Aimed at

    • Industry, factory and production managers.
    • Project managers, organization managers, continuous improvement managers.


Familiarizing yourself with the collection of Lean tools
  • Value stream mapping.
  • 5S, Pull system, SMED, 7 wastes, problem solving system.
  • Spaghetti diagram, development analysis.

Mapping the value chain for each family of products
  • Practical case study 1: re-establishing a workshop.
  • Carrying out value stream mapping.
  • Familiarizing yourself with tools.

Measuring the overall efficiency of a process
  • Practical case study 2: developing the plan of action to move from the current value chain to the target value chain.
  • Practical case study 3: setting up the pilot Lean workshop.

Reducing the length of the cycle
  • Practical case study 4: how to work Just in Time to obtain good quality at the right moment and at the right cost.
  • Practical case study 5: increasing the availability of equipment and improving the quality of products thanks to self-monitoring.

Successfully managing the Lean project
  • Practical case study 6: combining tools in order to bring the teams together to make the project a success (bulletin boards, workshop dashboard).
  • Practical case study 7: which indicators to monitor in order to measure the results obtained thanks to Lean (service rate, rejection and poor quality rate, overall equipment effectiveness, etc.).

Implementing Lean on a day-to-day basis
  • From Lean Manufacturing to continuous improvement: how to make the approach last in the long term.
  • Maintaining the Lean approach after several phases of improvement.
