Lean manufacturing is helping companies worldwide reduce operating costs, improve quality and contribute to profitable growth. Online learning is increasingly becoming an important way for people to gain practical knowledge on implementing lean manufacturing. Gemba Academy, the leader in online learning solutions for lean manufacturing has released a Quick Changeover Online Training Course.
The 12-module online Quick Changeover training course with six hours of learning material covers theoretical and practical aspects of quick changeover, with an actual case study demonstrating how the SMED principles are applied step by step to achieve dramatic reductions in lost time.
"With this course we have taken computer-based learning to another level," said Ron Pereira, chief instructor for Gemba Academy and lean six sigma master black belt. "We documented an actual case resulting in a 66% changeover time reduction on a press at Ram Technologies. We deliver not only theory, but actual practice and encourage everyone to achieve similar benefits with these widely applicable SMED principles."
Gemba Academy offers on-demand, high quality, low cost online training solutions in the areas of lean manufacturing, the Toyota Production System and continuous improvement.
