Lean Manufacturing Simulation Game

Lean Manufacturing Simulation Game


A hands-on practical lean manufacturing simulation game suitable for manufacturing staff of all levels. The game has been designed for a group of up to 8-10 staff and is based upon each participant taking an active role in running a mini-production line where ‘real’ products are manufactured.

Why introduce Lean Manufacturing?

  • Increased Customer Satisfaction
  • Reduced non-value added activities (waste) in your business
  • Improved Profitability
  • Improved Process Control
  • Company Wide Team Work Methodology

  • Recognise ‘waste’ and other non-value added activities throughout a manufacturing process
  • Understand the benefits of 5S in a factory environment
  • Recognise the benefits a basic pull scheduling system e.g. Kanban can make to a manufacturing process both in terms of materials supply and reduction in work in progress.
  • Understand the rudiments of setting up a lean manufacturing cell
  • Identify mistake-proofing devices (Poka Yoke)
  • Understand why factory layout is important (Batch & Queue vs.Cell Manufacturing)
  • Recognise the role ‘managing constraints’ plays in lean manufacturing
