Lean 101 Workshop

August 22, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm CDT


Missouri Enterprise is partnering with Next Page, Inc located in Kansas City, MO., to offer a No Cost Lean 101 Workshop series that introduces you to Lean Manufacturing concepts. This workshop is for manufacturers in Enhanced Enterprise Zones (EEZ) and surrounding areas to assist communities in creating sustainable jobs in a targeted industry and encourage job creation in specific areas. The workshops are limited to a maximum of 24 individuals.

Lean manufacturing is a production process based on maximizing productivity while minimizing waste within a manufacturing operation. It is not about one person; it’s about your whole team focusing on Lean principles, helping detect and correct inefficiency and waste wherever it occurs in your operation.

The Lean 101 workshop is designed to help your team understand continuous improvement, which in return, will make your company more responsive, competitive, and profitable. The lean workshop allows team members to understand the fundamentals of lean and how the tools of lean are implemented.

Not only will you walk out of this workshop with an understanding of lean terminology and concepts, but you will get to experience a hands-on simulation of what your company is trying to do when adopting lean. Participants of the workshop will act as staff of a mock company for three rounds of simulation, where they will apply Lean tools to transform the enterprise from a batch-and-queue production system to a flow system.

There are several benefits of lean manufacturing that a company can gain such as reduced lead times, reduced operating costs, and improved product quality. So, come experience a Lean 101 Workshop with Missouri Enterprise. All materials for this workshop will be provided, participants just need to be present and ready to learn.

**Limit three participants per company

This Lean 101 series is brought to you by the new America Works initiative. As a part of the MEP National Network’s goal of supporting the growth of small and medium-sized manufacturing companies, this lean series focuses on innovative approaches to workforce development.

Missouri Enterprise can offer this workshop at your facility and help you with your manufacturing needs. Contact your Missouri Enterprise Local Area Business Manager to learn more.
