Lean Bronze Review - July 20-22

This course is intended to prepare participants to take and pass the Lean Bronze Certification Examination, which will be offered on the third day for those who sign up for the exam separately with SME. This 3-hour multiple choice exam is designed to test understanding of the Lean Certification Body of Knowledge.

The review course helps participants understand the body of knowledge that test questions are drawn from, provides practice exams and exercises to give students a good idea of what will be included in the exam, and offers several takeaways that students will find useful on exam day.

BACKGROUND:

The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), the Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME), the Shingo Institute (home of the Shingo Prize) and the American Society for Quality (ASQ) have partnered to develop an industry–based credential to acknowledge the lean skills of individual lean practitioners. The standard assesses a person’s lean knowledge (exam), as well as the individual’s ability to apply that knowledge (lean project portfolio). Three levels of certification progress with practitioners throughout their career: Bronze (Tactical lean), Silver (Integrated lean), and Gold (Strategic lean)

This event is a Bronze Level Exam Preparation Course (with ability to sit for Bronze exam as an option), designed to prepare students to take and pass the multiple choice, open book exam that is the first step in pursuing certification. Bronze Certification is focused on tactical application of lean. Tactical lean is the deployment and application of lean principles, concepts and methods locally, within a work cell, work group or value stream. This may be a workshop or project focused on implementation of specific lean concepts or techniques. This workshop is designed to prepare individuals to take and pass the Bronze examination, the first step in pursuing lean certification.

BENEFITS:
◾ Understanding of the Bronze-level Body of Knowledge and requirements

◾ Review of recommended material

◾ Learn how the test is structured

◾ Learn how to focus your exam preparation activities

◾ Group activities and discussions

◾ Practice exercises and tests

REQUIRED READINGS:

Participants in this course are expected to read the recommended readings prior to the course and should bring their books to the class. E-Books are not allowed for the exam

Exam questions are based on specific Recommended Readings:
◾ Gemba Kaizen, Masaaki Imai

◾ Lean Production Simplified, Pascal Dennis

◾ Lean Thinking, James P. Womack and Daniel T. Jones

◾ Learning to See: Value Stream Mapping to Create Value and Eliminate Muda, Mike Rother and John Shook

◾ Lean Lexicon - LEI

When: July 20-22, 2016

Print Reading For Industry - Oct. 4-6

Purpose: The purpose of this training course is to teach basic and general print reading skills. 

Duration: 3 Days. Scheduled class time is 8:00AM. to 5:00 PM.

Is inaccurate print reading costing your firm big money in scrap and rework?

 

Manufacturers must make products according to print specifications. If your employees can’t read or understand prints, your customers will point out product defects due to blueprint errors. Accurate print reading is important to quality work, customer satisfaction, and to your company’s profit margin.

 

In only 24 hours of training, our specialists at the Auburn Technical Assistance Center can improve the print reading skills of your employees. This course is taught to the ANSIY14.5M-1982 and ASME Y14.5M

1994 Standards and is designed to teach employees to read and understand mechanical prints. The course consists of three eight-hour classes. Each class consists of lecture and practical exercises.
