All DFT knowledge was presented in an extremely attractive and easy to understand way. I’m so glad that I had the chance to participate.
Our instructor was well versed and experienced in mixed model DFT. I am glad I had the opportunity to attend this training as DFT is used in our facility and will help me in my day to day activities
Our instructor was extremely knowledgeable, patient, professional and had an excellent disposition. The course material was in-depth and thoroughly discussed.
The overall experience was amazing. The material shown was very informative and enlightening. The most important thing that I am taking away from this workshop is the tools needed to set up and run a demand-driven line. I would recommend this class to anyone who wishes to improve production and customer service.
