Lean management and practices have existed for decades. Essentially, Lean provides a mindset, toolkit, and a way of working using human resources to continuously identify opportunities to improve efficiency and reduce waste in processes.
Similarly, some digital technologies have been around for decades. For example, robotics, digital twins, artificial intelligence, additive manufacturing, and the internet. Enter the relatively ‘new’ era of Industry 4.0 (I4.0), the confluence of these, and other technologies (AR/VR, IoT, big data) integrate humans, machines and systems to achieve higher levels of automation, production sophistication and digitalisation.
In this webinar, we take a broad-brushed approach to explain the synergy of Lean and I4.0 (Lean I4.0), how it enhances lean practices to achieve higher levels of operational excellence, enables business model innovation, and provide some practical tips for Lean I4.0 adoption.
Registration for this course will close at 10:00am AEDT on Wednesday October 13 2021.
