Lean Assembly

The nuts and bolts of making assembly operations flow

Michel Baudin

What you can expect from this two-day course

Do your products move through assembly in "hurry up and wait" mode? Do operators spend more time handling than assembling? Do they sometimes mount the wrong parts? Do some struggle to keep up while others wait? Does your line layout prevent them for helping each other? Whether you are improving existing lines or designing new ones, this course gives you ideas, techniques and tools -- based on lean principles -- to remedy these and other dysfunctions affecting your profits.

You will learn how to analyze and improve assembly operations using video recordings and tools available on every engineer's PC. And you will gain insights through examples of solutions in industries including automotive, aerospace, electronics, household appliances, and personal products, and in applications ranging from high-volume/low-mix to mass customization.
