Planning Lean Layouts with SLP: A practical working seminar based on the world's most widely used layout method

Tuesday–Thursday, May 22-24, 2007
Courtyard by Marriott Country Club Plaza, Kansas City, Missouri

This course will provide you with a step-by-step explanation of Systematic Layout Planning (SLP). On Day One you will learn this powerful and universal method. Working in teams on Day Two, you will use SLP to prepare and present a manufacturing plant layout. On Day Three, teams use SLP to prepare a detailed equipment layout for one department in the previous day’s plan. In the closing session, you will learn to organize and lead your next layout project using SLP.

Note that while manufacturing examples are used, the procedures you will learn are equally effective for laying out warehouses, offices, technology centers, and labs.

This workshop will prepare you to lead effective layout planning workshops for your organization. You will learn how to prepare for such events, how to conduct them, and how to get remarkable results faster than most people believe possible!
You will leave with step-by-step examples and web access to the spreadsheets needed for your workshops and future layout projects.
The SLP method is standard practice among many companies and consultants implementing lean thinking. Translated into 10 languages, it is recognized throughout the world and is an effective corporate standard for multi-national firms.
