TRIZ SOLUTIONS (1SFC-TRZ)

TRIZ SOLUTIONS For Solving Technical Design Problems
(1-Day Training For Manufacturing Engineers & Supervisors)

Course Overview

TRIZ is an algorithm for inventive problem solving. It has the inventive procedure to be learned as a set of Principles and Rules to help problem solvers develop a new way to solve technical problems without resorting to trade-offs. TRIZ is a methodology that equips engineers to look at Design Problems differently – which is called System Conflict. Once this is identified, the next step is to resolve the System Conflict by developing Technical Contradiction of the Design Features.

The Process of TRIZ can be learned by Analysts, Engineers and Officers and applied to Product Features that customers want and remove all potential design conflicts with simple and yet effective solutions in a much shorter period of time.

This is a new way to solve old problems to develop ingenious inventive solutions that enhance quality and raises the reliability scales. Companies can immediately see the benefits from the employees using the TRIZ methods.

Course Objectives

This training course teaches the participants to solve technical problems using innovative ways as follows:-

1. Know How To Define A Technical Problem Using The Substance – Field Model For Force, Field, Tool, Part, Material
2. Learn How To Search For Resources Using Space, Time, Condition, Property And Geometry And Others
3. Learn To Identify The Technical Contradiction Of All Design Features
4. Learn How To Select The 39 Parameters Arising From Technical Contradiction
5. Learn How To Use The 40 Principles To Generate Inventive Solutions

Who Should Attend

This one-day training is ideal for directors, businessmen, managers and engineers to learn the TRIZ process quickly for their own and organization benefits. It helps to introduce new ideas and new solutions to help R & D, Product Engineering, and Process Engineering personnel to make breakthroughs through new ways of thinking.

ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS (1SFC-RCA)

ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS With Quick Troubleshooting Method
(1-Day Training Course For Busy Executives & Officers)

Course Overview

Quick Troubleshooting requires diverse and broad technical know-how and applications experience in many areas. This has confounded problem solvers as to how to approach the problem and identify the root cause quickly. This is by no means an easy task if the right approach is not used in the first place. Troubleshooting involves the ability to map out the problem and systematically analyze the location to find the root cause. This is a critical skill that has to be mastered by all managers, engineers, supervisors and officers responsible for making day-to-day decisions to manage production smoothly. Equipped with fast troubleshooting skills, executives and officers of productive resources only need to apply the techniques learned from this course to help move the organization forward to take effective corrective action to minimize losses, downtime and restore disruption quickly.

Course Objectives

1. To provide the participants with a good background on how to recognize the many types of problems and what approaches are best used to deal with them
2. To equip the participants with the right way to diagnose the problem to determine the right type of data to be collected
3. To teach the participants the techniques of analyzing the data collected to quickly identify a range of possible causes
4. Participants will also be taught how to intelligently use Questioning Techniques with Separation Rules to isolate the Root Cause
5. Participants will also be taught how to search for the Root Cause at many levels of the Root Cause Structure of Problem Solving
6. Participants will master the many charting applications that are used for mapping different problem issues for quick troubleshooting

Who Should Attend

This course is very rewarding to Supervisors, Engineers and Managers, many of whom have not been exposed to best-in-class Systematic Troubleshooting and Problem Solving training. Supervisors, Engineers and Managers can participate regardless of the level of knowledge on problem solving. They can all complete the training with full understanding and applications of the know-how as outlined under the objectives.

VALUE STREAM MAPPING (1SFC-VSM)

VALUE STREAM MAPPING For Production Service & Engineering Work
(1-Day Course For Busy Executives)

Course Overview

Many organizations need a bird’s-eye view of the organization’s business activities in terms of workflow involving processes and operational activities from store receiving activity to production/services/engineering process to pack and shipment. At the same time, there are other incidental operational activities, such as preparation setup, transportation and quality inspections that needs to be carried out, as well as unavoidable delays. Compounding the workflow of the Value Stream Map are batch inspections and continuous inspections after each process by quality control.

So in reality, many value stream maps are superficial or not providing the key cycle time information for the proper computation of the workflow cycle time for the conduct of continuous improvement.

Course Objectives

Attend this training by a world class cycle time engineering expert and you will be provided with a first class training on the following:

1. How To Identify & Classify Many Types Of Production, Service & Engineering Activities
2. What Are The Basic Display Icons To Be Used For Value Stream Mapping
3. What Cycle Time Data Are Applicable In The Data Box
4. How Are Delay & Unavoidable Waiting Time Computed
5. What Should Be The Flow Quantity
6. What Is The Delivery Cycle Time For First Quantity & Subsequent Quality
7. What Can You Do With The Value Stream For Continuous Improvement

Who Should Attend

This training is designed for busy executives, SME bosses, Directors, Managers, Engineers and Supervisors who are interested to develop their own Value Stream Map for conducting organization improvement.

Pre-requisite

No pre-requisite is required for this training as the training will be conducted hands-on. Every organization’s workflow processes are different, so it is up to each individual to develop the Value Stream Map for his organization by mastering how to do it themselves in the training class with the help of the instructor.
