This is a three day training seminar held at the premises of KINZ in Auckland and includes a tour of a leading Lean manufacturing business in Auckland.

The Total Flow Management model is directly derived from the Toyota Production System (TPS) and our host will showcase the application of TFM in their organisation.

This course explains Flow Management and demonstrates the advanced Lean FLOW and PULL principles and techniques of the Toyota Production System (TPS) through a combination of classroom training and a practical simulation.

Participants in the course will learn about the objectives and methods of the Toyota Production System and Lean manufacturing, with a view to implementation in their own enterprises. They will learn about and apply the essential principles of FLOW, PULL and LEVELLING.

These principles will unlock efficiencies across any organisation’s end-to-end supply chain. Our FLOW simulation is predominantly using the assembly of a physical product, but the same principles and concepts are applicable to any organisation in the service industry.

The course cost is $2,495.00 plus GST per participant.

This course is also available as an in-house programme. less
