Why Attend a Principles of Lean Manufacturing Workshop?
Ultimately, Lean is about satisfying your customers. Lean organizations do this by working to eliminate anything that does not add customer value to their products or services. Lean helps companies improve plant processes, efficiency, safety, production, delivery times, customer service and employee morale. This can lead to fewer mistakes, less work in process and lower employee turnover.
