We continue to add new content over at Gemba Academy. So far we’ve covered the following topics:
- 5S Workplace Productivity. They say, “If you can’t do 5S, you can forget the rest.” Learn why 5S is far more than a housekeeping initiative as we teach you step by step how to implement and sustain 5S. This course is also available with Spanish Subtitles.
- Dealing with the 7 Deadly Wastes. You may already know what the 7 deadly wastes are… but do you know how to defeat them? We’ll show you how as we take our cameras inside Ram Technologies, a custom foam fabricator located in Mukilteo, Washington. This course is also available with Spanish Subtitles.
- Transforming Your Value Streams. Learn how to transform your value streams using lean tools and principles such as value stream mapping, takt time, kanban, error proofing, and heijunka/production leveling.
And most recently we’ve been hard at work on a course focused on Quick Changeover and SMED where subscribers of Gemba Academy have been learning how to radically reduce machine changeovers using the SMED (Single Minute Exchange of Dies) system while witnessing an actual changeover reduction kaizen unfold in front of their eyes.
