About Our Presentation

Companies survive by providing value to their customers.  To do so profitably, companies focus on continuous improvement.  Lean Manufacturing is a primary strategy for continuous improvement, with its focus on reducing waste.

This presentation will introduce Lean Manufacturing concepts and provide an overview of tools/techniques that Tim has found useful in a manufacturing environment.  Participants will gain insights regarding the seven wastes, four lean strategies, and eight tools including value stream mapping, visual factory, 5S, Kaizen, Poka-Yoke, and Total Productive Maintenance (TPM).
