Demand Flow Technology Training

Demand Driven Manufacturing Education

for the 21st Century

Make Demand Driven Education the Cornerstone

of Your Business Transformation

Demand Flow Technology training is fundamental to establishing flow within your manufacturing facility to enable your company to become Demand Driven meeting the expectations of your customers in today’s complex and volatile marketplace.

3.5-Day Training Program

The Mixed Model Demand Flow Technology training program is designed for manufacturing operations, manufacturing/industrial engineering, planning, materials and supply chain personnel responsible for designing, implementing and maintaining flow manufacturing within your, or your supplier’s, facilities.

This workshop is founded on Flow, one of the five core principles of Lean as established by Womack & Jones, and utilizes the approach of Flow Manufacturing created by John Costanza. Designed by Thought Leaders with decades of manufacturing and supply chain experience, this fully interactive workshop will dramatically expand your understanding of Lean and Demand Driven Manufacturing.

This premium Demand Flow Technology training program is specifically designed to combine in-depth knowledge of Mixed Model DFT with a series of hands-on simulated factory workshops and group projects that will demonstrate why Flow Manufacturing is key to transforming a company into becoming Demand Driven as well as the skills to be able to do so. We deep-dive into the math and science of DFT while sharing our experiences in the art of how to truly implement.

Do you want to learn the secrets of DFT Implementation? Then this is the course for you.
