This is a basic course in Lean production – a method for resource management in production. We often hear talk of ”more value for less work” and basing decisions on long-term thinking despite the expense of short-term goals. In this course, we discuss just that.
In this course we will discuss these areas and explain how to minimize waste. We also focus on an important part of Lean production: mass production at minimum cost.
Purpose and learning objectives

After the course you should be able to carry out Lean activities in your own business with the templates and tools provided.
