Lean Pull Expert (Kanban, Milk Run, JIS)

Lean manufacturing in internal logistics processes. Focused on material movements: ramp-storage-floor-workplace. JIT, JIS, KANBAN, MILK RUN techniques, Storage and Workplace ergonomics. Come and acquire new skills. The course is part of the LEAN EXPERT certified programme.

An innovated form of training with high added value in both the online and factory variant.

Wherever there is a product for a customer, there are also movements of components and products. Wherever there are movements, these movements need to be managed. If we want to manage processes involving movements, we must know how to analyse them and manage them with the anticipated, ideally maximum, efficiency.

We’ll teach you to analyse internal logistics in all standard factory activities – ramp, receipt, initial checks, storage, restocking, removal from storage, storage at the workplace, movement at the workplace. We’ll focus on individual types of techniques used – manual work, forklift, system stackers, logistics trains, kardex, automatic stores, AGV and more.

Learn to identify logistics output losses. Propose and implement streamlining of logistics processes. We will teach you clear theories of Kanban, JIS, JIT, Milk Run. We’ll explain the benefits, limitations and needs of different techniques in different fields of industry. We’ll teach you to analyse these techniques for existing processes and prepare you for their implementation within new processes. You’ll learn to propose Kanban loops. Try out practical Kanban calculations, Kanban supermarkets using model examples. Take away model and model calculations. We’ll teach you to work with the pull mechanism, propose and create sequential storage, propose a new Milk Run.

Practical courses in a factory

The active connection of the lectured theory and the immediate practical training in the operation of the host factory will allow you to learn the real implementation of the trained technique. We carefully select the host factories to provide a suitable environment for the lecture and at the same time be a motivation for your personal development.

The training takes place in the host factory in the full range of 3 days.

In the factory we carry out 3 practical workshops focused on Milk Run, JIT / Kanban and analysis of internal logistics in a cross-sectional sample throughout the factory.

ONLINE variant

With the use of specialized software tools, we will not only lecture you, but together we will work as one team, you will work in small groups, or you will do simple homework. You will go through 15 hours of theory, practical exercises and creating solutions to prepared model situations. You will work intensively, but from the comfort of your office or home.

Coaching of your project is included in the online variant. We cannot take you to a factory, where we practically try out the technique. Therefore, we will turn the situation around and you will take a personal consultant to your factory.

We will prepare your workshops together. You do the analysis, you shoot the videos of the process. With the help of online techniques, we will control your progress, help with guidance and professional advice. We will help your team put together the final solution and standardization.

I think that the Lean Pull Expert training was very beneficial and it was well divided into a theoretical and practical part. I much appreciate the fact that the participants were from different production environments, so we had the opportunity to share very useful comments and opinions in discussions. The possibility to visit the plant of the organizing company was also great. The great proactive approach of the lecturer set the level of the training even higher.

I was very satisfied with the course of the training. Both the theoretical and practical part fully met my expectations. I really liked the visit in the plant where I gained a lot of suggestions for improvement of the current conditions in our workplaces.
Renáta FloriánováAvire, PSUL Supervisor
The three-days training was very beneficial. I consider the linking of theoretical part with practical workshops as the biggest positive, as well as pleasant working atmosphere and professinal approach of the lecturer. I also appreciate well prepared study materials; thanks to those I can return to the theory anytime. I can recommend the training even to the beginners such as myself, as it is a training full of information. If I have an opportunity to attend some other ICG lecture in the future, I will gladly take it.
