The onsite training project offers practical strategies and techniques for organizations to learn how to improve results—waste elimination, energy reductions, quality enhancement, building efficiency, delivery of value to customers—while achieving environmental performance goals.  Hidden wastes—sometimes buried in facilities and support functions—can be significant, as can the costs associated with them. Environmental wastes are often a sign of inefficient production, and they frequently indicate opportunities for saving cost and time.  Both lean, environmental and energy metrics are introduced into a current state value stream map to help identify a roadmap to process improvement efforts.  This training teaches people without an environmental or energy background how to “see” new wastes for the first time.

This three-day project will work with a cross-functional team to measure and identify areas for improvement within the production, information and waste flow of your operation, establish a vision for the future, and develop a plan to achieve the vision.

The scope of this training includes an environmental analysis that focuses on:

  • Raw materials used in products and processes;

  • Pollution and other environmental wastes in the value stream; and

  • Flows of information to environmental regulatory agencies.
