Methods for lean logistics

Day-to-day life at production plants is often characterized by high inventory levels, missing parts and client supply backlogs. Are you also familiar with these problems? The approach of "separation of value added and logistics" drastically changed the classic material industry. The successful application of lean methods in logistics supports the production at the location required, through BestPoint delivery within the system. Create optimal production logistics by applying short-cyclic material supplies in takt time and introducing "tugger trains". Design the planning and control processes with continuous pull principle from client order, through production, to the supplier.


This training is characterized by the practice-oriented acquisition of lean tools and methods through simulations and a practical workshop in the Logistics department at the BMW plant in Landshut or Dingolfing. Based on the optimization of a real logistics process, you will achieve 100% supply reliability with minimal inventories. You will successfully design the change process from push to pull principle. You will learn how to dimension and set up a Kanban cycle and design a tugger train.

The seminar will be in German language.

Course structure
With the specialist training "Lean logistics" you complete stage 2 of our 3-step Lean Experts and Lean Trainer training.
Level 2 specialist training (in one of the offered specialist areas) is mandatory if you wish to become a Lean Expert or Lean Trainer.

Since the lean management basics are not repeated in the seminar, you will work online, independently and flexibly on the web-based training "Lean Management Basics" in preparation for the seminar. The web-based training serves to refresh your already existing lean basics knowledge; the basic training cannot be replaced by the web-based training "Lean Management Basics".

At the end of the seminar you can take a voluntary written final examination for certification. If you pass the exam and successfully complete stages 1 and 2, you will receive the certificate "Lean Expert".
After successfully completing stage 1 and stage 2, you will receive your "Lean Expert" certificate.
After successfully completing stages 1, 2 and 3, you will receive your "Lean Trainer" certificate.

Additional information
You build on your knowledge in your respective field. Beside "knowing", the highly practical focus also guarantees that you gain the ability to apply the knowledge. Prior knowledge of lean concepts is required.

For demand-oriented preparation at level 2 of your training, you will work online, independently and flexibly on the web-based training "Lean Management Basics".
