Why this seminar?

Is the factory the result of a historical development now messy? Can the value stream be improved? Do the layout correspond to the value stream? Do the locations of the departments generate enormous waste in terms of unnecessary movement of people and materials? It is time to review the overall production process and the layout of the factory. The experience shows that the changes to organization of the production process and to the layout (not necessarily expensive) lead a huge benefit in terms of lead times and reduction of space, items that do not only improve the competitive ability of the company but often quickly repay the investment made.
