LEAN Australia, in collaboration with Manufacturing Learning Australia (MLA), has developed a model for practical workplace implementation of Lean Manufacturing that is said to be demonstrating significant positive outcomes for organisations.
The model integrates 5S processes, TPM, Quick change over, TQM, and visual controls with workplace learning and assessment principles, competitive manufacturing and Lean thinking. Supervisors and operators are mentored through on-the-job implementation which is measured against real world performance benchmarks.
The process supports Culture Change, Self Directed Teams, Improvement Idea Generation and Kaizen Blitz’s and ensures that Lean principles and processes are integrated into every day thinking and work practice.
Lean Australia and Manufacturing Learning Australia are presently hosting a series of seminars and workshops which will assist companies to tap into lean thinking and to make informed judgements about whether and how to implement Lean.
While the seminars finish this month, readers should visit www.mlaust.com for more information or call the MLA on 02 9518 7785.
