Intended learning outcomes

After completing this course the student should be able:

  • describe the historical the development of Lean Production and problematize Western interpretations of the Toyota production system
  • explain the principles and concepts of Lean Production
  • apply tools and methods such as value stream mapping, 5S, Jidoka, visual management, SMED, Poka Yoke, standardized workand Heijunka to eliminate waste in the system
  • analyze, evaluate, develop and propose solutions for how industrial and service organizations can achieve more efficient processes using Lean
  • adopt a systems perspective in the implementation of Lean Production and describe the factors that are important for success
  • analyze, problematize and evaluate the application of Lean production in various sectors
  • discuss the relationship between Lean Production and other improvement programs as Agile Manufacturing and Six Sigma
  • critically analyze, evaluate and use literature in the field of Lean.

Course content

Lean philosophy, Lean strategy, 5 basic principles of Lean production, waste according to Lean philosophy, Just in Time, value stream mapping, 5S, Jidoka, visual management, SMED, Poka Yoke, standardized work, Heijunka, improvement strategies (i.e. Kaizen), Hoshin Kanri, daily management, Lean leadership, implementation issues and Agile manufacturing.

Teaching and working methods

The course is carried out in form of lectures and lessons with accompanying exercises and group work. The course has a strong industry linkage and is based on five project assignments, which relate to the application of Lean in different industrial contexts. Students receive regular supervision to support the project work. At the end of the course a conference on Lean with speakers from industry is organized.

Examination

UPG1Project workU, 3, 4, 56 credits
The project assignments focus on supporting students' active learning. The course is examined by 2 individual assignments and 3 group assignments. The final grade is based on the sum of the points from the assignments and participation in two course occasions: Lean game and Lean conference. For grade 3 only one individual assignment is required.
