Lean Production

„These days, wind turbines form part of our landscape, and play an important part in environmental sustainability. Now, whenever I see a wind turbine, it reminds me of the lean production simulation game and enthusiastic seminar participants!“

L. Steininger, MIAS Maschinenbau

Explanation

The company Power World has 7 employees (5 x production, 1 x logistics, 1 x maintenance) and manufactures wind turbines. Its manufacturing is based on the classic push principle. The first round of the game is characterised by overproduction, excessive stock levels, large batch sizes, unnecessary transport journeys, quality issues, and long set-up times, stoppages, and waiting times. Participants will gradually implement lean production and lead the company back into profitability.

 

Sense and purpose

The perfect game to comprehensively communicate lean production, as it gives participants impressive examples of how the most important principles of lean production work together. Use this game to comprehensively illustrate lean production to participants.
