Lean Training Goes Portable With Our Toyota Production System Dojo
My colleagues and I recently debuted our Toyota Production System (TPS) Dojo at the 21st LCI Congress in Fort Worth, TX on Monday. With former Toyota teammate Mike Oswald at the helm, we taught TPS basics and put them into immediate action on our portable assembly line. Starting with standard work baseline, the students went through several iterations of product assembly as they made improvements.
The course is conducted using a blend of classroom study and hands-on work in an assembly line learning lab. Students will learn the basic elements of TPS, receive training in takt time and taking cycle time measurements of a production process, all while working throughout the day to optimize a process on a portable assembly line.
We offer this as a day-long training that teaches lean skills in a fantastic team-building session. And, since the dojo is fully portable, we can come to you!
