Lean simulations

Simulations are a fun and interactive way of learning Lean concepts and techniques.  Participants play roles in a simulated process and experience the results of improvements. There are generally 3 rounds as follows:
- Baseline
- Improved – the participants decide on the improvements
- Lean – demonstrates how lean thinking is applied using Value Stream Mapping

We have developed 3 simulations to demonstrate the application of Lean thinking in different environments:
- Nano dots – manufacturing
- Helicopter Rescue – processing / maintenance
- ecoAware – service and office

The full kit for these simulations can be purchased through Learning and Productivity.
