KurzbeschreibungThis course (i) introduces the fundamentals of Lean Production and (ii) shows how new Industry 4.0 technologies can support a lean transformation. Through lectures, hands-on serious games, reflection and discussions, students learn (i) how lean production differs from other forms of production and (ii) how lean in synergy with new technologies can increase productivity in a production setting.
LernzielAfter taking this course, students will be able to:
1. Operationalize and apply the just-in-time principle in manufacturing
2. Design a production system that minimizes quality errors
3. Work in a team to solve problems with selected problem-solving tools
4. Understand the role of behaviours and leadership in lean transformations
5. Select and apply new Industry 4.0 technologies to support the lean transformation
InhaltThis course is organized as a block course with two full lecture days. Day 1 focuses on the fundamental lean production principles and practices. Students get intimately familiar with lean production through a hands-on and immersive serious game and integrated reflection rounds. Day 2 focuses on how new technologies challenge and enhance the classic lean principles through presentations, hand-on exercises, and discussions. After each day, students write reflection notes with peer-review. The course is useful both for students with no previous experience of lean as well as for students with extensive experience of lean.
