The benefits of using simulations and games to show the ideas, concepts and application of lean manufacturing tools are well recognised. They are a powerful and fun method to demonstrate improvements such as:
- Work place organisation
- Shorter lead times
- Work balance
- Quicker changeovers
- Reduced batch size
People are so much more willing to challenge working practices in a simulated factory and are quick to identify waste in the system. This provides ideal foundations for starting to challenge and find opportunities in their own areas of work.
Lean games provides complete, ready to use simulations and kits for use in training and implementation of lean manufacturing and continuous improvement techniques. They are intended for use by consultants, in house company trainers and academics.
