Nordson will highlight teams and people engagement, gemba walk, leader standard work, flow lines, pull systems, single piece flow and continuous improvement. The tour will include a look at performance, and what has been done to grow its people to use structured methodologies, i.e. waste reduction. The cycle for LSS deployment will be reviewed, highlighting the use of assessments, charter, roadmaps, skill development and scorecards. Learn how team boards, team huddles, and gemba walks work tighter to provide a cycle of improvement. See work cells that have combined the use of standard work, product build synchronization, pull and single piece flow to provide a factory that is able to handle a very cyclical demand signal. Then review how these concepts are applied to “designed to order” work content.
