Continuous Improvement and LEAN for Process Industries workshop

Continuous Improvement and LEAN for Process Industries workshop

 Continuous Improvement & LEAN for Process Industries workshop -
proudly hosted by CSLBehring

CSL Behring logoFor decades now companies have  been attempting to follow  the LEAN  model  for manufacturing based on the Toyota Production System to gain the combined  benefits of highest quality, shortest lead times and lowest cost. 

It should not be surprising that the early successful adoptions  of LEAN were also in industries that had assembly elements to their manufacturing processes where it was easier to apply the Toyota model . Some great successes have also been achieved since  in other industries where the standard assembly examples and case studies are more difficult to apply.  To some extent these successes have been achieved with a somewhat different perspective with some adaption of some of the tools and techniques to meet the differences in the nature of the process industries. Nonetheless, some of the tools SMED, TPM, Kaizen, Problem Solving, Visual Management still apply without much modification of approach from traditional TPS methods.
This workshop is a chance for those on a Continuous Improvement or LEAN journey  in a process industry such Petro-Chemical, Dairy and other food , Fertiliser, Pulp & Paper, Metal manufacturing, pharmaceutical to name but a few to discuss with others on the same journey and share approaches.
