KAIZEN  &  SHOPFLOOR  ORGANIZATION

(A  ONE-DAY  WORKSHOP)

 

Course Description:

This workshop is designed to teach process improvement techniques in order to identify and eliminate non-value added activities in shopfloor processes for productivity improvements, efficient resource and space utilization, and reduce work-in-process inventories.
