3-Hour Virtual Training: Lean and the Manufacturing Process


Instructor: Charles H Paul
Product ID: 705229

  • Duration: 180 Min
Lean implementation is not confined to just manufacturing. It can be appropriately applied throughout the organization in all functions. This virtual training program, however, focuses on manufacturing, where lean was born. The difference between this treatment of lean application and others is that we have imbedded the concept of GMP and compliance into our lean model to make it particularly applicable to the life sciences.

Why Should You Attend:

The first virtual training program in the lean series - Achieving Lean Operational and Compliance Excellence – Lean Leadership - looked at the role leadership plays in a successful on-going lean implementation. This webinar will begin by looking at lean in terms of its characteristics, considerations, tools and techniques.

The Gemba reports or the reporting process results in the identification of areas, processes, operations, actions, etc. requiring improvement. The Gemba triggers improvement action. What to look for and how those findings are identified is addressed in this session, in terms of the “8 wastes” and 4Ms – man, machine, material, method.

Once issues are identified, root causes must be determined and that means problem-solving. There are many approaches that can be applied and the most common will be covered. Finally, the principle that defects can only be prevented by carefully simplifying processes so that mistakes/human error are impossible to make is addressed. This principle or process is called mistake-proofing and is fundamental to lean. Numerous examples of each lean principle will be presented to aid in understanding and enhance learning.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define the GMP rules of manufacturing
  • Explain how the rules are used
  • List and describe the contents of the GMP rules of manufacturing and how they vary from industry to industry
  • Explain how the rules translate into observable action on the production floor
  • Define Gemba and how it fits into the lean manufacturing scheme
  • Define the 8 wastes and 4Ms and explain how they relate to Gemba
  • Describe the tools used to report Gemba findings
  • Explain how the Gemba process is deployed
  • List and describe the steps for completing the Gemba Walk
  • List and describe the mistake proofing tools
  • List each of the common problem solving methods
  • Explain when each method is appropriately used
  • Explain how each method is used
  • Define mistake proofing
  • List and describe the types of errors and defects and their relationship
  • List and describe the methods for error elimination
  • Explain how mistake proofing is implemented
