Many manufacturers are now critically evaluating their processes to determine their effectiveness in bringing maximum value to customers. Customers are shifting more of their costs to the manufacturing chain. The key to gaining a competitive advantage is to re-engineer business processes.
This course will lead the engineers and factories management through the various industrial engineering approach with respect to the activities involved in capacity assessment studies, benchmarking, modeling, unit cost drivers, work methods analysis, internal procedures simplification, time measurements, standard allowed minutes (SAM) establishment, different production set-ups analysis, modular team concepts, etc.
The application of a simultaneous engineering approach is much needed to scientifically shorten lead time, reduce costs and establish core values driven by costing formulae and KPIs.
