Ice Cream Sundae Production: From Job Shop to Lean Flow

More Information:

Join APICS Toledo and UT APICS Student Chapter for "Ice Cream Sundae Production: From Job Shop to Lean Flow".

This interactive workshop will compare a job shop layout to a lean flow line while participants assume the role of customer order entry professionals, production planners, workstation operators, inspectors or hungry customers placing orders.

The session involves two major exercises: first, a simulation of a traditional job shop layout; and then, creation of a flow line to demonstrate the improved lean environment.

Attendees will gain knowledge of the following concepts:

  • The advantages of empowerment and engagement
  • Lean improvements in productivity, space requirements, lead time and quality
  • Some secrets you never knew about Lean (which contradict the so-called “experts”)!

Facilitator: Sheryl Holbrook, CPIM, CSCP, APICS Certification Instructor, VP Education, APICS Toledo.

Cost: $25 for APICS Professional Members; $30 for Guests; $15 for Students.
