WTEA Workshop

Special Certification Workshop

This simulation demonstrates the advantages of Lean Manufacturing tools and techniques over traditional production methods, by utilizing continuous improvement.  By working through five phases, participants see the power of tools to create a safer workplace, eliminate waste, maximize throughput, minimize losses, minimize inventory, improve productivity, and improve quality. With the hands-on approach, participants operate work stations to build zero-turn mowers along a simulated assembly line. For ease of demonstration, the materials and components are represented by plastic blocks. Supplier problems, labor skills, deadlines, quality issues, safety concerns, and other typical situations have been incorporated into each phase of the simulation. (This will be a block presentation running from 10:15 AM- 2:20 PM with lunch being provided.)

Workshop will feature Tanner Behnke, Brillion HS and Jeff Kerns of Ariens Co.
