Lean 101

Lean 101 Overview with Simulation.

Missouri Enterprise’s Lean 101 Overview with Simulation workshop is an 8-hour interactive session designed to provide attendees with an overview of Lean terminology and concepts. Participants will staff a mock company for 3 rounds of simulation during which they’ll apply the Lean concepts to transform a batch-and-queue production system to a flow system. The program typically requires 14-20 participants to maximize the value of the simulation. Topics of discussion include:

  • Defining Lean
  • The Goals of Lean
  • Value Added vs. Non-Value Added
  • Management Responsibilities
  • Lean Culture
  • The 8 Wastes of Lean
  • Simulation – Round 1
