Aligning the Fundamentals of Design Systems Thinking Process to Lean Principles (Non-credit bearing) SLP
This SLP provides fundamental insights into lean enterprise management system principles. The goal is to reduce cycle time, disruptions and variation applicable to products or service systems. Delegates will learn the fundamental strategies to adopt when designing reliable lean systems specifically they will define a system, align continuous improvement with desired organizational outcomes, enhance system throughput to sustain organizational processes. The lean systems failure constraints and analysis will be defined to design reliable and people-based lean systems. The short course is for business and private-sector executives, process improvement managers, production supervisors, project leaders, and operations associates in manufacturing and service industries on how the lean movement is able to support the success of an enterprise, encourage the thinking to recognize failure with formal engineering-type failure analysis.
This system-based design thinking leads to new competitive strategies inspired by a balanced flow, perfect alignment of supply chain to production rate, improvements in throughput, reliability of the system and responsiveness to customer demands. The development of a unique transformation enterprise management system approach for an exciting series of organization changing activities will show immediate financial results but also sustain growth. The course includes lectures, case study explorations and exploitation of work environment applications in alignment to system performance metrics.
Upon the successful completion of the module, delegates should be able to:
• Understand Lean enterprise management systems strategy
• Initiate and develop a fundamental strategy on achieving reliability in the organizations processes
• Learn Lean systems failure analysis (Define the Problem)
• Design reliable lean systems (Solution to the Problem)
• Design people-based lean systems (Sustain the Problem-Solving-Culture)
The course consists of the following modules:
