Introduction to Lean for Service and Manufacturing

Using inefficient procedures is like digging a 200-foot wide hole for a 100-foot wide house. You'll have wasted a great deal of effort on something you don't really need. Your organization must make shrewd investments in its precious time, money, and effort. You need flexible, intelligent strategies to evolve and prosper in a competitive global market.

Lean is a methodology that incorporates a powerful set of tools and techniques designed to maximize customer value while constantly working to reduce waste. It focuses on improving overall efficiency, quality, and customer satisfaction.

Because of its ability to improve customer satisfaction and deliver bottom-line financial gains, Lean is a preferred strategic choice for many organizations.

This course introduces you to the basic principles of Lean, which will help you create more efficient processes and get you on the road to successful operations management.

This course also outlines the five-step process for implementing Lean. By learning how to implement Lean in your organization, you can reduce the costs of developing your company's product, increase production efficiency, and improve safety, quality, and performance levels.

Finally, the course explains how Lean integrates with the Six Sigma production management system. Using this hybrid approach enables you to minimize process and product defects, and to identify and resolve pervasive problems.

Essential Lean Manufacturing for Management Consultants

Practical guide how to improve production and operations in a firm and analyze potential savings in Excel

Created by Asen Gyczew - Expert in performance improvement, turnaround and startups

What is the aim of this course?

 

This course will help you drastically improve your knowledge and skills in optimizing production, and operations  of any company through a series of practical cases. It is designed for people who want to become consultants, business analysts or have to run and optimize production on a daily bases. In the course you will learn 3 things:

 

  1. How to understand any production or operational activities

     

  2. How to optimize the production and operations in order to get more things done, cheaper at higher quality with less resources using elements from lean manufacturing, theory constraints

     

  3. Where to look for savings and improvements, how to calculate potential savings in Excel and implement them

     

I will concentrate here on lean manufacturing techniques as well as things related to theory of constraints (removing bottlenecks and critical chain).

 

The course is based on my 12 years of experience as a consultant in top consulting companies and as a Board Member responsible for strategy, improvement and turn-arounds in biggest companies from FMCG, SMG, B2B sector that I worked for. On many occasions I had to optimize the whole production and operational side of the businesses I was responsible for.  On the basis of what you will find in this course I have trained over 100 consultants, business analysts and managers who now are Production Directors, Operational  Directors, COO, Investment Directors, Directors in Consulting Companies, Board Members etc. On top of that my courses on Udemy have already been taken by more than 45 000 students. The course you will take has been taken also by people from EY, Walmart, Booz Allen Hamilton, Dell, Walgreens and many more as a part of Udemy for Business.   

I teach through cases so most of the lectures are case studies showing some business problems solved in Excel. There will be also overview of main techniques used in optimizing and running production. To every lecture you will find attached  (in additional resources) the Excels shown in the Lecture so as a part of this course you will also get a library of ready-made analyses that can, with certain modification, be applied by you in your work.

 

Why I decided to create this course?

 

Most consultants and business analysts are terrible at organizing operational issues. They treat the operations, especially production, as a black-box and try to avoid it at any cost. Technical things overwhelm them and they shy away from them. This approach is not the right one as you find elements that resemble production everywhere. In hospitals most procedures performed are very similar to production issues. The same goes for running a call center, a chain of restaurants, a logistic company or a firm delivering specialized services. Everywhere you have operations that you can optimize by using techniques that I will show in this course.  Production influence heavily other areas especially sales and marketing. Therefore, it is a good idea to have at least a general knowledge in production. The funny things is that to be good at production you do not even have to be technical at all. I have not finished any technical school and I am pretty good in finding significant improvements in production. One of the best Production Directors I know has finished Pedagogical Studies.

 

To sum it up, I believe that if you want to build or to find improvements in any business you should master techniques related to optimizing production. That is why I highly recommend this course not only to consultants or business analyst that have to advice their customer but also to owners, founders  of businesses as well as production directors.

 

In what way will you benefit from this course?

 

The course is a practical, step by step guide loaded with tones of analyses, tricks, hints that will significantly improve the speed with which you find and analyze production. There is little theory – mainly examples, a lot of tips from my own experience as well as other notable examples worth mentioning. Our intention is that thanks to the course you will know:

 

  1. How to understand production

     

  2. How to optimize it

     

  3. Where to look for savings and improvement in production

     

  4. How to calculate the impact of proposed changes in Excel

     

You can also ask me any question either through the discussion mode or by messaging me directly.

 

How the course is organized?

 

The course is divided currently in 6 sections and will be adding new section to address other important issues. Currently you will find the following sections:

 

  • Introduction.      We begin with little      intro into the course as well as some general info on production

     

  • Basic      methods of improving production. In the second section I will discuss the basic techniques that you      can use to optimize your business. Here you will find the potential low      hanging fruits. Here I will show you basic lean manufacturing methods as      well as elements of theory of constraints. You will also see how to      calculate potential savings in Excel

     

  • Continuous      Flow. The ideal in      production is the so called continuous flow -every go smoothly and fast.      Products are being produced fast and cheap. In this section I will tell      you how to achieve it. This is one of the pivotal element of lean      manufacturing

     

  • Advanced      methods of improving production. In section 4 I will continuous with more advanced way in which you      can improve your production such as: SMED, TPM, Automation, Critical Chain

     

  • Capacity      management. Apart from      optimizing the production you have to think strategically and know when      you have to add new capacity / factory. In this section I will show you      how you can do that

     

  • Production      planning. Production      planning is the brain of production. If you get this wrong the other      things won’t matter. In this section I will show you some ways in which      you can analyze and improve production planning

I will be adding new sections and lectures in the coming months

 

 

 

You will be able also to download many additional resources

Manufacturing is the production of goods through the use of labor, machines, tools, and chemical or biological processing or formulation. It is the essence of secondary sector of the economy.[1] The term may refer to a range of human activity, from handicraft to high-tech, but it is most commonly applied to industrial design, in which raw materials from the primary sector are transformed into finished goods on a large scale. Such goods may be sold to other manufacturers for the production of other more complex products (such as aircraft, household appliances, furniture, sports equipment or automobiles), or distributed via the tertiary industry to end users and consumers (usually through wholesalers, who in turn sell to retailers, who then sell them to individual customers).

Manufacturing engineering, or the manufacturing process, are the steps through which raw materials are transformed into a final product. The manufacturing process begins with the product design, and materials specification from which the product is made. These materials are then modified through manufacturing processes to become the required part.

Modern manufacturing includes all intermediate processes required in the production and integration of a product's components. Some industries, such as semiconductor and steel manufacturers, use the term fabrication instead.

The manufacturing sector is closely connected with the engineering and industrial design.

In this age of fast growth (rapid technology age), customer demands are increasing rapidly. Customers do not like to wait. The traditional processing time needs to be shortened. It is a ‘Buyers market’ today, instead of a ‘Sellers market’ as it used to be in the past. The traditional method involves time loss on concept designing, manufacturing, assembly and testing. For example, in case of a foundry, lot of time is spent on pattern designing, making, getting the casting done and then evaluating its performance. This initially involves designing and redesigning, until a satisfactory product is developed, which is a very slow process. In order to get this time recovered, to overcome the slow trend and grow up with the requirements of the next generation, the most logical answer to the future of design and manufacturing is the Rapid Prototyping Technology (RPT). Rapid prototyping (RP) is a technology wherein the physical modeling of a design is done using a specialized machining technology. Rapid prototyping (RP) is used to generate the product directly from the 3D CAD model data. Using an additive approach for building shapes, the systems in RP join different materials like liquids or powder to form some physical objects. In this course you will learn the basics of Additive Manufacturing or Rapid Prototyping (RP), various steps in RP, applications of RP and different methods of RP.

Fundamentals of Manufacturing for an ERP is a Course released 26th November 2020, aimed at freshers aspiring to learn and Fundamentals of Manufacturing Functions.

In typical manufacturing organization you may be directly part of manufacturing the Products of your organization. Or you may be dealing with Manufacturing unit while performing functions such as Sales, Marketing, Procurement, Planning, Design, Accounting, Finance, Store keeping and Services. In all your dealings you might be wondering on some of the terms and practices that you might be hearing in the conversations with your Manufacturing counterparts.

You as a Store keeper deal with issuing materials and may realize certain material are issued as a set because they are all used to make certain product. At times, you will be seeing alternative items issued in place of the items in the Material list against the work order for which you are issuing the material. At times, you see some material are not immediately requested even if they are in the Material list of Work order. This is probably because they are needed only in later steps of manufacturing. You will pick a few things about manufacturing and miss many.

As a Sales person you will be wondering why an order for big quantity from customer can not be fulfilled at the given dates. Why cant this order be still taken and fulfil by engaging more people to complete on time. You will be disappointed for the delay of Cash Flow when the Planner or Plant manager firmly confirm the order of such size can be delivered only at a later date. You may really want to know what are those constraints which can not let the Production Plant deliver the order on the date you wanted even with adding man power.

Even as a Lathe Machine expert in the Manufacturing Department, you might be wondering on many aspects on what is impact of your work on the end product and why certain scheduling actions on your piece of work, are not clear to you.

This kind of "missing knowledge" or "gaps of knowledge" is quite common for all interfacing functions of Manufacturing, as well as the function Manufacturing itself. Every one of you know a little bit on Manufacturing not all the basics. If any of you want to pick up Manufacturing as your add-on Skill or full time career, you may first want to get to the basics.
