Feedback after a PL LEAN Simulation Workshop

A lot of the workshop was content we have been covering with James, it was a good refresher, one thing I hadn’t paid too much attention to previously was the cost of WIP, today I sat down with members of my team and challenged them reduce the amount of WIP in the machine/pre assembly area of the window line. Nathan - Trend 

It was definitely beneficial for us and also we could see that other companies have same issues. Dom - Breezeway 

I found the workshop to be a great refresher as it has been about 10 years since being introduced to Lean concepts . Being part of the continuous development team here at Breezway and working with Dom I feel that we have great management support and we can instantly start applying these tools. GREG - Breezeway 

The biggest thing I took away from the course was that she was a lot more open minded about manufacturing then other people that have come in for the same type of training. In the past the external lean people seem to think that it’s a one glove fits all process but as she said on Friday, every plant is different. What works in one might not work in another and you have to modify it to suit your workplace. The overall concept is correct no matter what you are applying it too but what works for one may not work for another. Darren - Stegbar 

It would definitely be the information about Value added activities and Value Stream Mapping.  This gave me a different way to look at things that I will be making sure to apply at work. Brendan - Breezeway

 The one thing I learnt is that in order to implement Lean we will need time to not just analyse the bottleneck but to simulate what small changes could impact the workflow/cost as a whole. For example, an improvement on one station might not be an improvement of the overall production line. Rizal - Jeldwen Glass 

1 – that the small changes have big impact, really reinforced the actions we are taking at our site  2 – the networking that we were able to do internally helps build the sharing of ideas, a longer term plan should be actioned around this. Craig - Stegbar 

It was good with a hands on simulation. Easier with something tangible like a factory, but finding it more difficult to transfer to an office environment where we currently have a lot of waste of various kind. One thing we often get met with here in the office is the statement “that is not my job” and I think it would be a very good reminder across the board as illustrated in the TED talk what our job is. It is something I would like to try and incorporate here as a reminder to everyone. It is the same notion that is highlighted in the book “The Goal”.  Lena - Trend
