Electric motors, industrial equipment, electronics and semiconductors keep the world in motion. Advanced manufacturing courses teach both skills and provide technical assistance designed to reduce expenses and increase productivity. Troubleshooting skills result in faster problem diagnosis and reduced system downtime. For more than a decade, many of the largest semiconductor manufacturers in the world, including Texas Instruments and Samsung, have relied on courses that keep pace with specific workforce training needs. Course levels range from professional development for those already in the industry to helping new-hires gain skills. Employers wanting to train and retain workers as well as individuals looking for a career with high-pay potential may now consider new manufacturing training classes such as welding, Computer Numerical Controls and lean manufacturing fundamentals. Military veterans should note that enrollment cost for some CNC skills courses are covered by Veteran Benefits.

Lean Manufacturing MAP200 Lean for Leadership
This one day workshop teaches participants how to deploy both the improvement and coaching Kata within an organization. The workshop provides a treatment of the Toyota Kata’s theoretical framework as well as its practical application.The theoretical rationale for the Toyota Kata includes a preference for the use of the scientific method, the use of deliberate practice in the development or transitioning of mental models, and the deployment of organizational continuous improvement.The practical application includes how data is collected for determining the current condition (diagramming, process characteristics, process metrics, and outcome metrics), and the development of a target condition. Workshop content also includes determining obstacles and the cycling of PDCA (plan, do check, act) experiments.The workshop is not a simulation of any business process but is rather a demonstration of how the Toyota Kata applies to confronting challenging situations, including continuous improvement.ObjectivesUpon completion of the workshop, the participants should be able to:• Conduct a daily improvement Kata• Understand the importance of coaching• Distinguish organizational goals from value stream challenges, process target conditions, and local obstacles.
