En résumé

Learn how to apply key elements of lean manufacturing, such as 5S and Kaizen, to organizational processes to improve quality and productivity.

This course will introduce the main tenets of the Toyota Production System, which includes Just-in-Time manufacturing and Quality Control. We learn how to analyse process flow and see quantitatively the importance of establishing continuous flow, by calculating resource utilisation and cycle time to evaluate the impact of set up times, batching, defects and reworks. We introduce quality control tools in order to improve and stabilize our flow, using workplace visualization and discuss the critical concept of Kaizen, the Japanese practice of continuous improvement. You will see the impact of key concepts of Lean, including Heijunka, Kanban, Jidoka, Andon, Poka Yoke, and 5S, which help achieve increased quality and productivity.

Upon successful completion of this series, learners will earn the Technical University of Munich Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification, confirming mastery of the fundamentals of Lean Six Sigma to a Yellow Belt level, based on the American Society of Quality's Body of Knowledge for the Certified Six Sigma Yellow Belt.

Le programme

What you'll learn

  • The history and background of Lean production and the complementing elements of quantity and quality control.
  • How to measure production performance and how defects and waste degrade performance.
  • To improve process performance through application of lean principles, including setup time reduction, batch optimization, and defect elimination.
  • Elements of Lean production including Heijunka, Kanban, Jidoka, Poka Yoke, and Quality Circles.
  • 5S methodology for establishing and sustaining a productive work environment.

Course Syllabus

Week 1: Introduction and Identification of Waste
Review of the rise of mass production and the challenge presented by Japan's Toyota Production System, and introduce the core concepts of Lean: Quantity Control, Quality Control, and Waste and Cost Control. Understand the relationship between productivity and waste and discuss the well-known 7 wastes from the Toyota Production System.

Week 2: Continuous Flow

Perform process analysis, to identify bottlenecks and calculate resource capacity and resource utilisation. Understand the impact of variability in our systems on inventory and process time and discuss the importance of Takt, the drumbeat of the customer demand, in Lean Production.

Week 3: Adding Flexibility
Calculate the impact of setup times on process capacity when we introduce flexibility and how batching can rescuing this impact at the expense of higher inventories and flow times (waste). Discuss and calculate the best-practice metric, Overall Equipment Effectiveness, to measure availability, performance, and quality losses in our system. Gain an understanding of Total Productive Maintenance its role in Lean Production.
Week 4: Pull Systems
We then look at how pull systems as part of Quantity Control present opportunities to improve productivity and reduce waste in Lean Producing, including Total Productive Maintenance, SMED, mixed-mode production, and Just-in-Time manufacturing using kanbans.
Week 5: Workplace Organisation and Visualization
Introduction to the practices of Workplace Visualisation and 5S, Sort, Straighten, Shine, Standardize, Sustain, for establishing a work environment to support quality and Lean Production
Week 6: Quality and Productivity
Understand methods of quality control including the critical concept of Kaizen, the Japanese practice of continuous improvement, and other methods to eliminate waste including poka yoke and jidoka and andon, to increase productivity and quality.

La plateforme

EdX est une plateforme d'apprentissage en ligne (dite FLOT ou MOOC). Elle héberge et met gratuitement à disposition des cours en ligne de niveau universitaire à travers le monde entier. Elle mène également des recherches sur l'apprentissage en ligne et la façon dont les utilisateurs utilisent celle-ci. Elle est à but non lucratif et la plateforme utilise un logiciel open source.

EdX a été fondée par le Massachusetts Institute of Technology et par l'université Harvard en mai 2012. En 2014, environ 50 écoles, associations et organisations internationales offrent ou projettent d'offrir des cours sur EdX. En juillet 2014, elle avait plus de 2,5 millions d'utilisateurs suivant plus de 200 cours en ligne.

Les deux universités américaines qui financent la plateforme ont investi 60 millions USD dans son développement. La plateforme France Université Numérique utilise la technologie openedX, supportée par Google.
