FAQ'S LEAN workshop
FAQs‒The most frequently asked questions about the LEAN Workshop
What distinguishes the LEAN-live workshop from all other LEAN workshops?
It lives from the practical relevance. Everything revolves around your product and can be directly implemented and tested. It is not a business game, as you will find in most LEAN workshops. With us you experience productivity increase immediately on your own product.
What do I get out of the LEAN Workshop?
You have facts at the end of the day. You know how to reduce assembly times and thus increase productivity. Your employees help shape the process, because they know best where the waste is in the process. At the same time, the assembly process is also supported and accepted by the employees.
How does the LEAN workshop work?
With the support of a lean expert from us, you develop the optimum production process in the one-piece flow. In the process, waste is uncovered and improvements are implemented directly. You will quickly notice how lean production affects your productivity.
How are the ideas implemented?
In our workshop we have various assembly workstations, flow racks, crates, holders and much more, which are assembled depending on the product. Cardboard engineering is used to adapt and expand the workstations and shelves. Thus, the future workplace can be simulated and tested for suitability by your employees. Special holding devices can also be built provisionally in our workshop, if necessary. The goal is for you to see and experience how you can produce in the future. If something bothers you or is not in the right place, it will be adjusted and optimized right away until you are fully convinced.
What do I get at the end of the day?
You will receive a detailed documentation of the solutions worked out. If you wish, we can also calculate the target price for this LEAN workstation made of our aluminum profiles from RK ROSE + KRIEGER. Thus, you can estimate the payback time based on the shortened lead time and have a sound basis for further decisions.
What else is there?
You can access our equipment consisting of standard modules for workstations, tools and material for cardboard engineering throughout the day. You will be supervised throughout the day by an experienced LEAN expert from our team. In addition, if necessary, a person from the design department is available to be called in for critical issues. If your product requires complex material sourcing or bolting processes, we will request a specialist from our partner companies SFS Unimarket or MABAG AG to assist you. You will be provided with drinks, snacks and lunch.
