Lean Management and Manufacturing
This webinar will provide the foundational understanding of starting a Lean journey. Principles and Lean terminology will be discussed and defined. Participants will depart with a broad understanding of how Lean principles can positively impact the graphic communication industry.
The graphic communication industry including printer, publishers, packaging companies, equipment and supply vendors, and so on are facing difficult economic conditions. The demand for printing has shifted to other modes of delivers such as the Internet and World Wide Web, and the graphic communication industry must now “reinvent” itself to compete. “Reinventing” means not only adopting new technologies and processes, but it means adopting new management styles as well. Lean management and manufacturing is a proven pathway to success in the 21st century for companies of all sizes—small, medium, and large.
The webinar will cover:
- History of Lean
- Lean defined for Printers
- Lean foundations
- 5S – the beginnings of Lean
- Set-up reduction
- Total Productive Maintenance
- Visual Management
- Lean success –steps to move forward
