Montgomery County Community College’s Workforce Development Division will offer a one-day training Jan. 15 on the principles of Lean Manufacturing.
The hands-on workshop will focus on the basic principles of Lean Manufacturing and will demonstrate — in a simulated production environment — how the principles are applied. Participants will see, “how waste is eliminated, productivity is increased and companies gain a competitive edge in the marketplace, all while reducing costs and improving cash flow,” according to a press release.
The session — which is being held on the college’s central campus — is the first public collaboration in conjunction with Delaware Valley Industrial Resource Center (DVIRC), a Montgomery County Community College Workforce Development partner.
The training will guide attendees through the transition from a traditional manufacturing approach to that of a Lean environment.
Individuals and organizations attending the session will gain an understanding of Lean and its advantages; and learn how to identify and eliminate non-value-added activities, according to the Delaware Valley Industrial Resource Center.
The one-day training runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4: 30 p.m. Jan. 15 and will be held in Parkhouse Hall, room 114, 340 DeKalb Pike, Blue Bell. For more information or to register visit www.dvirc.org/events/plm319-2/.
