Companies are always looking for new ways to improve business efficiency and increase quality. To run a business at optimal capacity, you need to reduce or eliminate waste from processes and improve production flow. In this course, you'll learn about Lean strategies to reduce waste by determining which operations add value and which don't. You'll explore the concept of continuous flow, and discover how to balance work processes to make production flow more efficient. You’ll define what waste is, where it exists, and what causes it. You’ll also examine aspects of muda, continuous flow, line balancing, and value and non-value-add, and practical Lean techniques for improving Operations Management.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • classify production activities as value-add, non-value-add, or necessary non-value-add
    identify strategies for eliminating waste caused by overproduction and inventory

  • identify elimination strategies for waste caused by overprocessing and defects
    match cycle time and takt time to their descriptions
