Lean Services and Office Kaizen

The University of Texas at San Antonio’s Center for Advanced Manufacturing & Lean Systems (CAMLS) is proud to offer this one-day course to the public.

Lean Thinking is not just for manufacturing. Non-manufacturing operations are becoming the larger part of the global economy; so is the hidden waste in them. This course can benefit both service organizations and manufacturers. This course covers the basic lean concepts and discusses how these traditional manufacturing concepts can be extended and related to service industries and office operations. The course includes the eight wastes, lean metrics, and multiple lean tools.

This course is taught by UTSA-CAMLS faculty.

The course presentation includes:

  • Classroom learning and discussion
  • Multi-media demonstrations
