Who we are:
The group is a consortium of eight of the most innovative suppliers to the manufacturing sector. The members are: ADM Automation, Bosch Power Tools, Bosch Rexroth, K.Hartwall, Orgatex, Spitfire Consultancy, Sick UK and Werma.
What we do:
The Lean Workshop Group holds free seminar training events at locations throughout the country. At these events delegates will experience the application of Lean and Industry 4.0 principles to both manufacturing, assembly and logistics operations.
How we do it:
The full-size manufacturing and logistics training area embodies the latest developments in Lean Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 technology and uses the latest equipment from Lean Workshop Group companies. The equipment is used in a wide range of applications to demonstrate how effectively Lean Manufacturing handles present-day requirements for high volume, high-mix production. The seminar is complemented by practical interactive sessions in the manufacturing and logistics training installations during which delegates will use the equipment to learn how to put into practice Lean and Industry 4.0 techniques. All delegates will have opportunities to discuss their own specific problems and requirements with the group partners.
