Principles of Lean


Organizations—manufacturing or other—that ignore the inherent benefits of Lean do so at their own risk.

Waste lies at the heart of virtually all processes, and without a structured, proven means of identifying and reducing that waste, you are sure to lose money and productivity.

DVIRC’s Principles of Lean course gives you an understanding of the tools available to counteract these losses; from here you can move on to more in-depth instruction to put improvement plans into practice.

This simulation guides teams through the transition from a traditional to a Lean manufacturing environment. Attendees will even experience how Lean principles are applied in a simulated production environment, equipping them with the fundamentals of Lean thinking…and doing.
