Background to Training Program
This virtual training program is specifically designed to enable companies to continue the training of their employees in the benefits of Flow Manufacturing while maintaining social distancing requirements.
This Advanced Mixed Model Demand Driven Flow Technology training program is designed for personnel working in manufacturing operations, manufacturing/industrial engineering, planning, materials and supply chain that are responsible for designing, implementing and maintaining flow manufacturing within your, or your supplier’s, facilities. This class will detail what Demand Driven Flow Technology is and demonstrate how it can and has been, applied across all industry sectors. Whether your company is small or large, whether your facility is batch driven or not, no matter the size of your products you will understand how Demand Driven Flow Technology will help and benefit your company.
Designed by Thought Leaders with decades of manufacturing and supply chain experience, this fully interactive training program will dramatically expand your understanding of Flow Manufacturing and the associated techniques required to implement Demand Driven Flow Technology (DDFT) in your company. The content of this training program combined with the “real life” implementation experience of our trainers provides you with the required know-how to transform your manufacturing facility.
This premium training program is taught across four 3-hr lecture sessions and four 2-hr tutorial sessions and is specifically designed to combine in-depth knowledge of Mixed Model DDFT design with a series of projects that demonstrate why Flow Manufacturing is key to transforming a company into becoming Demand Driven. Furthermore, this class will provide you with the tools and skills to begin transforming your company. We will deep-dive into the mathematics and science of DDFT while sharing our experiences in the art of how to truly implement.
During each lecture session, we will introduce the specific DDFT tools required to implement Demand Driven Flow Technology in your manufacturing facility. These lecture sessions are followed by a series of assignments and tutorial sessions where you will be tasked with specific exercises to reinforce your understanding of the DDFT toolset and how to use each tool. Moreover, these assignments are designed to simulate each stage of an actual DDFT implementation.
The class will conclude with a DDFT implementation case study assignment to prepare an operational DDFT layout for a fictional factory using the tools and skills you have developed over the course of the training program.
The Benefits of Training
Today more than ever, manufacturing companies need to slash their lead times. Significant reductions in lead times will enable manufacturers to maintain and gain market share. In addition, and probably more importantly in this Covid-19 New Normal, speed of cash flow generation is key to the future of an organization. lead time optimization will thereby minimize the amount of time it takes from receipt of order to receipt of cash.
Through participation in this virtual Mixed Model Demand Driven Flow Technology training program, you will understand first-hand what Flow is and how your company, and ultimately your customer, will benefit from the implementation of the renowned manufacturing methodology, Demand Driven Flow Technology. The tools learnt in this class will enable companies to reduce lead times by as much as 98%, improve productivity by as much as 69%, reduce WIP by as much as 60% while increasing levels of output and manufacturing in less space.
This training program will provide you with a real and pragmatic process for converting your factory from forecast driven to Demand Driven Flow, removing waste and delivering sustainable bottom-line benefits just like all the companies we work with.
