Lean Manufacturing Tools Program
Optional FETAC Level 5 certification)
Purpose of Course: The purpose of the program is to give participants the skills to implement some of the most widely applicable Lean Manufacturing Tools, such as Set-Up Reduction, Line Balancing, Standard Work, TPM, Kanban Systems & Value Stream Mapping. They will receive some hands-on practice in using these tools in classroom simulations.
This will allow them to contribute more quickly when joining an organisation that already uses Lean tools and may allow them to bring some new tools to smaller organisations that have not yet adopted Lean.
Optional Certification: The certification option, if pursued, requires candidates to submit 3 assignments:
1. Lean essay on the extent of implementation, and/or potential for implementation, of Lean in a previous employment to be submitted by Classroom day 4 (requires max 1 day non-contact time)
2. Value Stream Map, current & proposed Future State, based on either a recent employment or on a Case Study issued by the trainer, to be submitted on 1st Follow-Up day (max 1 day non-contact time)
3. Project, either based on what they WOULD have done in a previous employment, or based on a Case Study issued by the trainer, to be submitted on 2nd Follow-Up day (requires 3-days non-contact time).
