RWTH Aachen Campus Certificate Course Lean Production Expert

October 9 to 13, 2023

The practice-based certificate course teaches and demonstrates Lean principles in production, also through the direct transfer environment in our Industry 4.0 demonstration factory. In the course, you will fundamentally learn about the 7 types of waste and you will gain comprehensive knowledge of process optimization with lean tools such as the 6S method, value stream analysis, and design as well as customer cycle and one-piece flow, Kanban, pull principle and the optimization of setup processes through SMED. In addition, you will experience Industry 4.0 live in our demonstration factory. After a theoretical introduction to each topic, you will promptly put what you have learned into practice in our demonstration factory. Our exercises and business games are an optimal preparation for subsequently implementing lean measures in lean projects in your own company. In the value stream design tool, you will record the ACTUAL value stream in our demonstration factory and use it to develop a waste-free TARGET value stream. The spectrum of the course is rounded off by further exercises and business games, e.g. on store floor management, SMED setup optimization, and our Industry 4.0 Factory Tour. The certificate course lasts five days, including the certificate examination, and is moderated by experienced trainers and experts with a practical focus.
