Description
As a continuation of the concepts developed in CLE 004, Introduction to Lean Enterprise Concepts, this module addresses the role lean manufacturing plays as part of an integrated lean technical process and include its objectives and priorities. It also summarizes the most important lean tools and techniques such as single piece flow, level production (Heijunka), waste (Muda), Kaizen, Just-in Time, Jidoka, etc. Also covered are the principles of Six Sigma, methodologies such as Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) and Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) and the role they can play in defect reduction. Two case studies, provide practical examples, of how Lean manufacturing principles blended with Six Sigma tools can be highly effective at reducing cycle time, unit cost and improving product quality.
