Visual Factory - Applications in the Process Industries


Event Details

This event is closed.

Visual Factories are more productive and safer environments to work in. Leaders are more effective, the business is more focused on the important issues, operators have greater situational awareness, deviations from standard and target are identified and addressed faster, and issues are escalated rapidly to the correct personnel allowing resources to be deployed quicker.

Visual Management tools and techniques as part of Lean Manufacturing originated in the automotive sector. There is not always a direct read across into the process industries. HFL Consulting have nearly a twenty year heritage adapting and implementing Lean in the process industries, so delegates will benefit from being taught by people with this knowledge and experience.

A Visual Factory:

  • Aids and improves decision making by leaders and managers

  • Focuses and aligns personnel on the important issues

  • Minimises lost time in wasteful activities

  • Supports continuous improvement across the organisation

  • Improves safety – occupational safety as well as process safety

  • Builds pride, ownership and professionalism

  • Builds trust with stakeholders

This course will cover a range of tools and techniques that typically fall under the banner of Visual Factory.

CIA Member price is £300.00 plus VAT
