Course Content

This course starts out by explaining what Lean and Six Sigma are and how they are related. You will learn how to implement an efficient and responsive ‘pull production system.’ We will subsequently teach you how to identify and mitigate various non-value adding activities in your organization. This reduces your costs substantially and optimize your supply chain. Techniques to be discussed include Value Stream Mapping, Poka Yoke, SMED, 5S, Quality Function Deployment, Jidoka, Andon and Heijunka.

Quiz 1
Replacing push production
You will learn the difference between push and pull production. You will learn how to optimize cycle times in order to meet your takt time through the elimination of bottlenecks.
Replacing push production 1 (Heijunka, JIT, Jidoka, Pull Production)
Replacing push production 2 (Cycle time, takt time, bottlenecks)
Quiz 2
Quality function deployment
You will learn what the QFD methodology entails. Furthermore, you will learn how to construct and apply a so-called ‘house of quality’ in order to design or redesign a product or service.
Quality Function Deployment (QFD)
