The objective of this programme is to provide participants with a detailed overview of how standardisation, monitoring and problem-solving are used practically to fix issues and ensure the organisation’s targets are achieved. The course is suitable for those in administrative, productive and manufacturing sectors.
6S and Visual Management – This module initially looks at 6S in the context of an overall Visual Management Framework and describes how it offers very real and measurable benefits to organisations which successfully implement it. Having overviewed 6S, the module introduces the students to a variety of methods used for visual management in a lean environment.
PIT Process – The name “PIT” is an acronym drawn from three words “Performance”, “Issues” and “Targets”. PIT is a quick, daily review of work aimed at ensuring that the agreed outputs for that area are achieved consistently. The PIT process is at the heart of the healthy functioning of any operation, continuously monitoring performance and taking immediate action where necessary to counteract risks.
Problem Solving – Covers the underlying concepts behind Lean problem solving, Root Cause Analysis and the application of the DMAIC (Define-Measure-Analyse-Improve-Control) cycle in implementation of solutions. It includes detail on the most commonly used problem-solving tools such as Five Whys and Ishikawa’s Seven problem solving tools and emphasises the A3 process as a problem solving methodology.
