Process Improvement Workshop - October 29-30 2019

Join us in Toronto for the first edition of the Lean Masterclass Process Improvement Workshop on October 29-30th, 2019.

The Process Improvement Workshop is offered to industry leaders and engineers who want to deepen their lean skills or implement lean manufacturing principles within their organization. This 2-day workshop includes two complementary parts: A Lean Plant Tour Masterclass and a Hands-On Workshop.



The first day consists of observing a specific problem that will be identified during the plant tour. With the help of Leslie, from the Quadrant5 consulting firm, you will perform an analysis and a problem-solving process. Various Lean tools and modules will be covered in the Masterclass part:

  1. Continuous Flow
  2. Kaizen
  3. Lean Culture
  4. Visual Management
  5. 5S Principles
  6. Layout Optimization
  7. Plant Tour



During the Hands-On Workshop, you will learn building steps in a continuous improvement project and will assemble a prototype structure that will be tested during your lean session. The following is a brief menu description of the second day:

  • Module 1 – Initiation to the modular system
  • Module 2 – Introduction on how to assemble
  • Module 3 – Hand sketch and 3D Design
