Lean Manufacturing, Lean Office, Lean Engineering… There are a lot of different “lean” approaches today in the company.

This course is based on the observation and analysis of the most advanced industrial initiatives (TOYOTA, MIT Lean Aerospace Initiative…). It is focusing on product development process improvement. It establishes the link with the founding principles of Lean Manufacturing but also taking advantage of the parallel that can be made between knowledge (engineering activities) and physical flows (production activities).

At the end of this internship, attendees will have the keys to establish a diagnosis of their company's current practices and to implement a Lean Product Development approach adapted to the company's maturity and challenges.


Level: Advanced

This internship is intended for program managers, product competence center managers or process / methods managers in technical departments, who have a good knowledge of the company's overall product development process.
