Lean Product Design Workshop

Lean Product Design Workshop Icon.

This course demonstrates how applying Lean elements to product design decreases cycle time, from concept to market delivery, while controlling costs. Participants are immersed in a competition that involves constructing a simple airplane structure with Legos, first simulating the traditional approach to product development before simulating the Lean approach, known as set-based concurrent engineering.

Hours: 4

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the challenges of meeting customer and design requirements
  • Incorporate set-based concurrent engineering into current product or process design practices

Intended Audience

Professionals involved in the design of manufactured products; managers (engineers, project leaders, designers, sales and marketing staff, and anyone interested in improving their development process so that minimal changes are implemented after product launch)
