Focus on the value-added processes and improve cycle time by eliminating waste. Peak Performance can provide Value Stream Mapping, 5S, Visual Management, Kanban, Level Loading, Kaizen Events, Standardized Work and Set-up Reduction. Maximize your labor efficiency and asset utilization while minimizing work in process.


Lean Tools

Lean principles and lean tools have a very important role in various industrial sectors in today’s manufacturing world. The core idea of lean manufacturing is to maximize customer value while minimizing waste in the manufacturing process. In this course, participants will learn some of the most useful lean tools to use as part of a comprehensive lean implementation plan, achieving goals centered around reducing waste, improving efficiency and increasing customer value. Participants will engage in a factory simulation for applied learning which will enable them to connect the tools to the hands-on experience.


Designed For:

Operators, supervisors, team leaders, coordinators, technicians and engineers.



Quick Changeovers (SMED)

Single Minute Exchange of Dies (SMED) is a Lean Tool that is utilized to reduce time and waste in the changeover of a manufacturing process and can be applied in almost any operation. Reducing changeover time will increase available production time. In addition to cycle time improvements, SMED can reduce costs and increase flexibility within a process. This flexibility enables the reduction of lot sizes and smoothing of production flow. Participants will learn the required steps and methodology to begin implementing improvements in set up time immediately.


Designed For:

Operators, supervisors, team leaders, coordinators, technicians and engineers.


Implementing Lean Manufacturing

Simply put, lean organizations are customer-focused. Although the concepts behind Lean manufacturing are simple, they can be challenging to implement in our complex, ever-changing work environments. After completing this course, participants will have the tools to provide a structure of a new way of thinking for your organization and launch a successful implementation of Lean Manufacturing. There is required work between modules and this training includes project time and consulting.


Designed For:

Supervisors, continuous improvement leaders, technicians, engineers and department managers.



5S & Visual Management

5S is considered a foundational part of implementing Lean within any environment. Incorporating visual management during this first Lean implementation step will enable effective communication regarding the manufacturing process. Incorporating 5S and Visual Management mentality into the workplace provides benefits beyond cleaning and organization. Improvements will be recognized through the elimination of waste, streamlining production, and optimizing efficiencies. Participants will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to implement 5S and Visual Management in their workplace immediately.


Designed For:

Operators, supervisors, team leaders, coordinators, technicians and engineers.
