Ice Cream Sundae Production: From Job Shop to Lean Flow
Join APICS Toledo and UT APICS Student Chapter for "Ice Cream Sundae Production: From Job Shop to Lean Flow".
This interactive workshop will compare a job shop layout to a lean flow line while participants assume the role of customer order entry professionals, production planners, workstation operators, inspectors or hungry customers placing orders.
The session involves two major exercises: first, a simulation of a traditional job shop layout; and then, creation of a flow line to demonstrate the improved lean environment.
Attendees will gain knowledge of the following concepts:
- The advantages of empowerment and engagement
- Lean improvements in productivity, space requirements, lead time and quality
- Some secrets you never knew about Lean (which contradict the so-called “experts”)!
