Standard Work

April 22nd 2021 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

“Without Standard Work, there can be no improvement.” This statement is a central truth of the Toyota Production System. Standard work defines the current best work process. It is the baseline for continuous improvement and is a tool used in auditing processes. Therefore, conformance to standard work contributes to the results you need to stay competitive, but is something we really don’t want to do. Until you can apply repeatable standard work successfully, improvements will yield less than their full potential and backsliding will be prevalent.

Value Stream Mapping

April 28th 2021 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

Value Stream Mapping is one of the most important tools for lean manufacturing. It lays out a visual picture of the vision you and your employees have created for your more productive future. It identifies individual process steps where waste can be removed. This hands-on workshop will provide you with the information and experience that is necessary to start implementing value stream mapping on the shop floor and in the office. Participants will learn to apply lean manufacturing techniques to remap the future state of their processes.

Process Mapping

May 4th 2021 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Maple Grove Community Center

Mapping demonstrates how Lean thinking can reduce process timelines and improve quality and delivery to schedule. In this session, you will map out real processes and learn about pre and post mapping tools to add to your personal toolbox. Did you know 70% of process improvements are not sustained?  We tend to focus on the process side and forget about the people side of change. You will learn a simple 3-step process for change management and leave with an entire cache of tools to assist you through successful process improvement deployment and sustainment.

Mistake Proofing.

May 11th 2021 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

People don’t want to make mistakes, but all workers make them. Learn how simple Poke-Yoke fool proofing may remove the possibilities for error. Production devices or design for assembly criteria can eliminate mistakes before they happen. Achieve the reliable, continuous flow of Lean manufacturing.

Measuring the Right Things.

May 20th 2021 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Plymouth Creek Center

“You get what you measure” is a truism among managers. Therefore, it is of critical importance that you “measure the right things” to get the performance you desire. In this case, the intended outcome is performance improvement. So, don’t get caught in the trap of using historical accounting measures to measure and motivate current and future performance improvements! Attendees should bring examples from your company of two successful and two not-so-successful measures for discussion that you would comfortable sharing with the group.

Setup Reduction

June 17th 2021 08:00 am to 4:00 am at Golden Valley Training Center

Excellent workshop for machine operators! Send teams to learn how to reduce setup times and eliminate waste on virtually any operation or machine. Participants will learn the tools necessary to conduct a setup reduction event.  These tools will then be applied to a simulated process, where they will identify wastes, make improvements and track their progress. Various options to “sustain the gains” achieved during the process will also be covered. Participants are asked to record a 10-15 minute video of a machine set up to include footage from the last good piece of the previous product/run to the first good piece of the next product/run. This would include all the “tear-down” process of the current product/run as well as the preparation work involved with the new product/run (material handling, paperwork, tool changeover, etc..). A .mov file format works best. Send the video to ma@mfrall.com by June 10.

Lean Manufacturing Simulation

October 7th 2021 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

For many, the first step in creating a culture of continuous improvement and developing an army of problem solvers is to help all employees identify opportunities for improvement. Participants gain knowledge and the tools required in order to help a critical mass of employees learn how to define value and identify and eliminate waste. After completing the workshop, participants will have experienced the difference between traditional and Lean manufacturing and its components.
