Book Description

Teaming up with the Eaton Corporation, Productivity Press is proud to bring you a comprehensive introduction to lean: The Eaton Lean System. Here is a unique training package with all of the features you've been asking for. Integrating the latest in interactivity with informative and powerful video presentations, this innovative software involves the user at every level, making the fundamental concepts of lean accessible, interesting and fun!

Seven topic-focused CDs let you tackle lean subjects in the order you choose. You'll get short lessons in each subject before watching examples and completing tasks that clarify the concept. Problems and interactive models are made fun with clickable tools. One example features a desk complete with a lamp, calculator and ringing phone. These CDs enable learners to apply the concepts right away, which makes for a powerful, high-impact learning experience.

Graphs, clocks, and diagrams showing efficiency, time wasted, or dollars lost help to demonstrate the purpose of the lean tools highlighted throughout the series. Video clips show real people working either the lean way or the wasteful way. It doesn't get any simpler or easier to understand than this -- the Muda CD video shows a cook making pancakes to fill a customer order! After going through the lessons, learners will help him find and eliminate the waste in his process.

Easy to install and use, the Eaton Lean System offers the user exceptional flexibility. Employees can either interact with the program one at a time, or a trainer can involve a whole class by using an LCD display. It's a training package that lets you combine the advantages of video and interactive software!

The Eaton Lean System includes in-plant video footage, interactive exercises and extensive simulations packed onto 7 CDs, each covering one of these important concepts!
