World Class Manufacturing Training

“The WCM program is a critical element to helping us become more competitive and has helped us get on a journey to become “World Class”. The key to VMA’s success is their ability to tailor training to meet our specific needs and do it in a way that has allowed us to reap immediate benefits.”  – Peter Barnett, V.P Operations, DanChem Technologies Inc. 

People are an organization’s greatest asset, and, as such, they will bring ideas to drive efficiency in operations and, thus, profits to the company’s bottom line.  World Class Manufacturing (WCM) training  teaches everyone to identify waste, which is critically important to determine what in your operations is of value and what is not.  Advantages of continuous improvement training are:

  • Increased Productivity
  • Reduction in Product Defects
  • Improved On-time Delivery
  • Reduced Lead Time

WCM training is based on Shingo principles of continuous improvement.  This program is designed to train individuals to assess operational excellence, as well as improve employee morale, individual and company performance, and company profits, whether on the production floor, in human resources or at management levels, by highlighting value and non-value added activities.  WCM curriculum will be customized to the specifics of your workplace.

WCM training participants will have learned to eliminate waste working across the enterprise through teamwork and communication.  Results will be seen immediately as employees become energized by the training to start making improvements right away.

The WCM training program is ideal for employees who are natural leaders, are vested in the survival of your company and take pride in what they do.  Through workshops and other hands-on training, WCM trainees will be able to:

  • Define Operational Excellence
  • Identify the Principles of Enterprise Excellence
  • Define the Journey for Achieving Enterprise Excellence
  • Identify Benefits of Continuous Improvement
  • Define Value and Non-value Added Processes
  • Identify Success Factors and Challenges of Implementation
  • Define the Value Stream Process
  • Identify TP3M (total productive, predictive and preventive maintenance)
