The goal of an operations manager is to maintain and standardize the ever-changing process improvements.
This training is designed in order to empower Operation Managers to identify the points of improvements and implement improvement activities and sustain this through standard operating practices.
This course track is intended to be transitional track in order to better leverage an Engineer’s skill to make them competent in latest skills required to improve them into an industry leader with best in the class know how about latest industry standards.
The course aims to enable to maintain process changes in order to implement and introduce new process innovations.
This course will enable the operational managers to understand all nuances of manufacturing operations.
Who Should Attend
All Senior Managers
Benefits of Attending
- Operations managers are the bridge between the top management plans and daily operations. For achieving the top target, the operation manager would be able to1. Remove clutter and uncertainty in process improvements through Value Stream Mapping2.Map efficient resource utilization through the Theory of Constraints 3.Reduce Overhead by efficient Inventory Management4.Increase efficiency by reducing wastages by using Time and Motion studies or formation improvements
5.Boost worker morale by workplace management
|Workplace management & safety at workplace
|A properly managed workplace is the key to better performance. It helps boost the morale of the workers as well as visually appealing. A safe workplace is not the only the requirement of shop floor but it’s a regulatory and legal requirement.
|Line, Cell and Flow management
|Manufacturing concepts like single piece flow, work optimization, FIFO flow, etc are the major backbone of Lean Manufacturing concepts. By implementation of these organization can move toward the first step of profitability improvement
|Lean layout development
|Manufacturing layout considerations are central to lean because they are so closely related to waste reduction – particularly the waste of transportation. Also, the continual flow and minimizing work in progress are clearly impacted by plant layout. Moving machines and workstations closer together with a considered, logical layout can dramatically reduce lead-times.
|Theory of constraints
|TOC systematically focus efforts, energy, and attention on the “system constraint.” This constraint, or bottleneck, restricts the output of the entire system and at the same time represents the primary leverage point for improving it. TOC adopts the common idiom “a chain is no stronger than its weakest link”.
|Simple & Low-Cost Automation
|Cost reduction is a major pillar of profitability. The Operational manager should be able to conceptualize and design simple and low-cost automation which can be made in house, with less than 2 years RoI. The SLCA can be applicable to design Poka Yoke systems and support elements
|Total Productive Maintenance
|TPM emphasizes proactive and preventative maintenance to maximize the operational efficiency of the equipment. The implementation of a TPM program creates a shared responsibility for equipment that encourages greater involvement by plant floor workers.
|Time & motion study
|Time-study and motion-study, both of which are scientific studies in search of optimization of performance by understanding the time and labor required. They eliminate unnecessary motions, fatigue, and seek to improve human efforts in doing a job.
|Ergonomics in manufacturing
|To optimize the integration of man and machine in order to increase productivity with accuracy. To improve working postures, increasing safety Developing most comfortable conditions related to climate, lighting, ventilation and noise level.
|Value stream mapping
|The objective of value stream mapping is a continuous improvement of business processes. Analyzing and Understanding Customer value and the key elements and methods of Value Stream Mapping
|Kanban & Just-in-time (JIT)
|To meet Just in Time goals, the process is based on the KANBAN signal between different production points, which tells you what to do next. JIT manufacturing is an efficiently coordinated production system that makes it possible to deliver the right quantities of products to the place they are needed just in time.
|A firm should neither hold excessive inventories nor hold inadequate inventories, i.e., it should hold the optimum level of inventory. There must not be an over-investment or under-investment in inventories.
|VA & VE
|As an engineering function, Value Engineering uses a process of function cost analysis to identify features that can be changed to reduce cost without affecting the quality of the facility. The main objective is to reduce project cost, without reducing the quality.
