AME Lean Boot Camp

When:  Feb 15, 2018 from 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM (PT)
Join us for the popular one-day AME Lean Boot Camp! This hands-on workshop focuses on lean fundamentals to allow participants to quickly learn and apply lean tools and methods. Participants will practice using lean tools and then work with host company Costco Optical Lab employees to implement kaizen that same day. Workshop highlights include: 7S, SMED, kanban/pull, standard work, one-piece flow, the eight wastes and their countermeasures, rattlesNVAke hunt exercises, set-up reduction, processing mapping, and more. Those that complete their kaizen work will receive an AME Lean Boot Camp certificate!
