1 Accelerated Route to Lean Manufacturing Our Accelerated Route to Lean Manufacturing programme (ARTL) can take your team from zero knowledge to lean champions in just 10 weeks. Designed to fit in with the working week, delegates spend one day a week away from work learning and sharing their experiences with other manufacturers from a range of sectors. From masterclasses in lean thinking and problem solving, to how to coach your colleagues to do their very best within continuous improvement, delegates complete the course confident they can make a difference to the bottom line back in their workplace. But don t just take it from us. Alistair Toward, Operations Director at architectural lighting company acdc, couldn t be happier with the way his team responded to the new skills and knowledge they picked up on the ARTL programme. They found 6 or 7 things that saved us between 30 and 40k straight away. It was an amazing start. The team who went on the ARTL course then presented a plan to the board to re-shape the shop floor which will cost 100,000 in staged payments but it could increase our capacity by up to 40m. The ARTL course was a great mechanism to capture these great ideas and enthusiasm. It was good from a leadership perspective for everyone to be involved. The is amazing stuff! Join one of the 1000 plus manufacturing professionals who have completed the course, creating millions of pounds of productivity gains.

2 So why this course? All the ARTL training is delivered by seasoned manufacturing professionals who have worked at very senior levels throughout the sector: Learn about the core principles of lean manufacturing Improve your understanding of best practice by visiting a world class manufacturing site Help your company create tangible and sustainable benefits from your know-how of efficient procedures Transfer the skills you learn to the rest of your organisation, improving practices across the board Understand the link between culture change and continuous improvement Increase your standing with suppliers and customers by attaining a Lean Manufacturing Fellowship What will I learn? This course consists of 10 day-long modules spread over 10 weeks. It combines practical forums with classroom-based sessions which will allow you to swiftly transform your new knowledge into real, commercial improvements within your business. The modules include: Introductions, Lean Thinking and Awareness This module will give you an understanding of the guiding principles of Lean manufacturing. It will raise awareness of how companies become lean and help you to understand the structure of this course and how the forthcoming modules will equip you to make changes in your own business. To provide an understanding of the guiding principles of lean manufacturing To raise awareness of how companies become lean To understand the structure of the Accelerated Route to Lean Manufacturing programme and how the forthcoming modules will equip the delegates to make changes in their own business.
