Lean Green Belt Livestream (10 days), 2 hours per day)

10 Days | 2.1 CEUs


This three-day course provides an in-depth understanding of lean enterprise principles and how to apply them within your organization. Your lean journey begins with a series of interactive simulations that demonstrate how each lean concept is applied and its impact on the process. Mapping the process flow and identifying the activities that add value from the customer's perspective is the cornerstone of this class. The class is then given a scenario and the students simulate the conversion from traditional to lean in a practical hands-on environment. The course also provides a structure for how to manage a lean process for continuous improvement. Participants will learn how to structure their organizations to support and continuously improve a lean process. Participants will also fully understand how to implement 5S within their plants and how to begin reducing setup time using the SMED process.

The course will be live-streamed for two hours per day during the weeks noted. (11 a.m. - 1 p.m. Eastern time)

The exam will be available online the following week.

Participants will be provided log in information several days prior to the start of the class.
