The Edges of Lean

Do you think there are differences between a lean culture and a culture for lean innovation? Norbert Majerus loved being an engineer in part because he was better with numbers than with people. But when Norbert was entrusted with leading the lean innovation transformation at the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, he had to build his skills with people. He’s written a new book that shines a light on the human side of a lean innovation culture and what leaders need to learn about themselves to drive positive culture change.

Work Analysis for Lean Production Applications

MFGO 635: Work Analysis for Lean Production Applications — A critical issue facing most manufacturers of a product is the design of a competitive and low-cost manufacturing operation. In this course, work analysis will consist of the application of process analysis, methods improvement, and work measurement and ergonomic techniques to meet the competitive goals of a manufacturing company or office environment.

The intent of this course is to survey the basic techniques of methods design, work measurement, business process analysis, and ergonomics. The student will be expected to solve fundamental and open-ended problems encountered during the design, analysis, or operation of a manufacturing facility (or an office) that produces a discrete product (or service).
