Why You Should Take This Class
The Mixed Model Demand Flow Technology Training Workshop utilizes over three decades of combined experience in Demand Flow Technology (DFT) to develop a fully interactive workshop that will develop your thinking in Mixed Model DFT Line Design. The Mixed Model DFT Training Workshop first introduces the need for flow and then continues to deliver the in-depth DFT knowledge you require to be able to establish Mixed Model DFT Flow within your manufacturing environment. We will deep-dive into the math and science of DFT while sharing our experiences in the art of how to truly implement.
This is a premium Demand Flow Technology training workshop is specifically designed to combine our renowned Mixed Model DFT training with a series of hands-on simulated factory workshops introducing why Flow Manufacturing is key to transforming a company into becoming Demand Driven.
Through participation in the simulated factory workshops and other hands-on exercises, delegates will understand first-hand what Flow is and how manufacturing, and ultimately the customer, will benefit from the implementation of Demand Flow Technology. During the classroom sessions, we will introduce all the tools required to implement Demand Flow Technology in your manufacturing facility. These classroom sessions will be followed by a series of group activities where delegates will be tasked with specific exercises to reinforce their understanding of the DFT Toolset and how to use it, building up a complete implementation data set.
The class will conclude with two activities to highlight the benefits of Demand Flow Technology. The first of these will be a simulated factory workshop demonstrating how DFT reduces lead time, reduces WIP inventories, improves productivity levels and quality. The final activity is a DFT implementation case study exercise to prepare an operational layout for a fictional factory, based on the data set that the delegates have created during the previous 3 days. During this final group exercise, the delegates will utilize all the DFT skills developed in class before leaving to implement DFT in their facility.
This Demand Flow Technology Training Workshop will provide you with a real and pragmatic process for converting your factory from forecast driven to Demand Driven, removing wastes and delivering real results.
All of our Thought Leaders have been training individuals and companies from around the world in the use of Demand Flow Technology for over 15 years. This education delivery added with our “real life” implementation experience provides all participants with the required know-how to transform their manufacturing facilities.
