  • Part II: Lean Tools – 60 minutes
  • Part III: Kaizen/5S Laboratory Application – 55 minutes


Course Overview

This three-part series provides a thoughtful, reasoned argument for application of Lean principles in the laboratory. Part I provides an overview of the Lean concept and explains how it adds value and eliminates waste. Part II introduces an array of tools and techniques that can be used to implement Lean, and Part III describes how Lean can be applied in a laboratory environment to maximum benefit. Though traditionally employed in manufacturing, this course demonstrates how Lean principles can radically improve efficiency, performance, and morale in the laboratory.
