The Lean and Agile Manufacturing Simulation Model simulates the concepts of lean and agile manufacturing. A “live” working factory model is used to contrast the operating styles between a typical “mass production” plant and a “lean” production plant.
Participants work as a team to plan, fabricate, manufacture, assemble, and ship two types of products using three common manufacturing processes - Traditional Mass Production (Push), Just-In-Time Manufacturing (Pull), and Cellular Manufacturing (Cell). Model functions include; warehousing, fabrication, WIP storage, assembly, inspection, accounting and shipping utilizing a miniature factory model, complete with tools, fixtures, materials and shop floor paperwork transactions.
The model initially utilizes a traditional Material Requirements Planning (MRP) based scheduling approach to operate the factory. Through the application of lean production concepts, participants learn how to re-engineer the factory by applying various lean and agile techniques that include:
Visual Factory Techniques
Design For Manufacturing (DFM)
One-Piece Work Flow
Integrated Supply Chain Logistics
Key Performance Measures & Controls
