|When done well, Value Stream Mapping can result is very large savings, improvements to lead times and economy of effort.|
However, it is one of those subjects where both its value and the skill to do it is in the detail. Superficially it would appear to be simple but when it comes to practice it is not so simple unless the practitionar has been properly trained. For this reason, this course has been designed to give the participant a lot of of opportunity to practice the skills in order to feel confident that they can do it back at their place of work.
This course and others in the Lean Manufacturing series are based on David Hutchins extensive experience in Production Engineering in the automotive industry, the management of Quality and more than 30 years intensive research into Japanese management systems. David has visited most Toyota plants in Japan and in the UK, several of its suppliers including Nippon Denso and NGK Spark Plugs, Nissan both in Japan and the UK together with Calsonic, Honda and Hino Motors. He has also worked with Ford in the UK and Germany, Iran Khodro in Iran, Shanghai Power and Light Company and parts suppliers in Hungary and Tunisia.
It has been said of David in Japan that he is the European that understands Japanese management better than any other Westerner that we have met.
This course will also be supported by one of the best trainers in the Lean Manufacturing field.
