The following is a list of courses and available onsite-training provided by DPMG Corp., expand a course title to learn more. 



Introduction to Workplace Organization

Customers, employees, and suppliers can tell a well-run organization without a narrated tour. The visual clues are everywhere. Establishing simple visual controls is one of the most important elements of becoming a Lean and Green Enterprise. Workplace Organization reduces the opportunities to make errors and help highlight, at an early stage, potential delays and disruptions and drives an organization to become green at the grass root level. Workplace Organization is much more than ‘a place for everything and everything in its place’. Workplace Organization comprises of seven principles to make people highly efficient, effective and greener in performing their doing work. This one-day session will provide the participants with the principles of Workplace Organization.


The training is designed to:

Provide participants with an overview ofWorkplace Organization, how it can benefit organization’s performance, an explanation of each category, how to get started, things to avoid, and tips for leadership.


Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the elements of Workplace Organization
  • Begin to implement the 30-second rule

PDCA-A3 Lean Problem Solving

 

Problem Solving is the foundation of the Lean office. Continually improving requires continually solving problems - whether these are technical or recurring day-to-day problems. As a Lean tool, A3 reporting addresses the root causes of problems that arise every day at work. When used properly, the PDCA-A3 process dramatically increases the probability of success. Leading companies, such as Toyota, use the PDCA-A3 report to train their employees in a proven and structured problem-solving approach. This 3-day (22 hours) course introduces participants to problem-solving frameworks, tools, and techniques, and explores their practical application to common office problems. 


The training is designed to:

Provide participants with the understanding and the means for applying the A3 process to drive office improvements. Participants will develop problem-solving skills to reinforce the application of the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) methodology through practical application.


Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • • Learn to identify, classify and define problems
    • Be able to analyze and prioritize problems, symptoms and root causes
    • Match the right problem-solving process to the problem
    • Use a variety of proven problem-solving models, tools and techniques
    • “Frame” a problem to gain support and buy in from others in the organization.
    • Understand how the A3 process works (PDCA).
    • Create an A3 problem report format to “tell the story” of the problem and to guide and structure the problem solving activity.
    • Use root cause analysis tools
    • Develop countermeasures
    • Develop implementation plans

Value Stream Mapping

 

Value Stream Mapping

Once you have decided to become a Lean Organization, you will need an action plan. Value Stream Mapping is the tool of choice to help you decide where, and in what order, changes need to be implemented. Value Stream Mapping is a simple yet effective way of visually depicting the current situation and then the desired outcome with an improved flow of the operation. These before and after maps depict both physical movement and information flow required to make things happen. Value Stream Mapping works by showing the actual state of the business rather than the theoretical one. This 2 day course will show in detail how to develop both current state and future state and create Value Stream Maps (VSM) that will be needed to implement a true Lean Office.


The training is custom-built to help managers:

  • Show the methodology of Value Stream Mapping
  • Demonstrate the nomenclature and standards
  • Describe how to segment the business activities to map
  • Show how to develop product/service families
  • Give instruction on data gathering
  • Show how to develop a Current State map
  • Show how to develop a Future State map


Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the different symbols used for VSM
  • Develop current state maps
  • Categorize operations and make product matrices
  • Develop Future State Maps
  • Identify the different major elemental parts of a VSM
  • Use the VSM to identify needed Kaizen events
  • A step-by-step development of current and future state value stream maps
  • Link waste to cost savings
  • Know how VSM can be used to in improvement initiatives
  • Be able to recognize opportunities for improvement in the workplace
