I would recommend that manufacturers work with Nebraska MEP as they can provide services that can help one become more competitive and efficient. After receiving the training from Nebraska MEP our associates were more aware of ways to increase productivity and eliminate waste. Additionally, we have used Nebraska MEP to assist in a tooling process that was also impactful to our organization.
Nebraska MEP provided on-site Lean 101 training in two sessions for employees on the Principles of Lean Manufacturing in a classroom discussion combined with live simulation sessions that demonstrated the concepts learned in the lectures. Participants learned how to: reduce cycle time, reduce floor space, reduce inventory, improve cash flow, improve productivity, and stimulate teamwork.
This training used a Lego simulation model.
