Manex’s LSW includes a three-round simulation to enable a much deeper and longer-lasting understanding of the Lean principles and their correlation to continuous improvement activities.
For each round of the simulation, participants are assigned a unique work station on the assembly line of an airplane manufacturer. Complete with parts, inventory, quality control, and incoming customer orders, the simulation lets participants apply the Lean principles and tools into a real-life production process. After the first two rounds, production results are shared. Then, with coaching from the Manex facilitators, participants work as a team to refine the manufacturing process, recommend improvements, and implement changes for the next round.
