Principles of Cellular Flow and Standard Work

MAP005 - 8.00 Hours

Description

This course covers the basic elements of a transformation from traditional to cellular manufacturing. It guides participants through the process of grouping products, establishing Takt time, reviewing the work sequence and balancing the process to design an effective cell.

Lecture materials coupled with exercises that allow participants to practice implementation. The course contains two production simulations - the first a traditional, functional factory layout. The second using a cellular design developed by the participants using information gathered in the exercises.

This course can be scheduled to meet your specific needs. For more information about this course or to schedule a class for your organization, please contact Knowledge Engineering at (800) 541-7149 or ke@teex.tamu.edu.
