Planning Lean Layouts with SLP
|Event Date/Time: May 04, 2009||End Date/Time: May 06, 2009|
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.
