Webinar Description
Dunwoody College of Technology has established a unique lean manufacturing laboratory to provide hands-on learning experience to its School of Engineering students. The objective to setup the laboratory is to provide students an experience of industry like environment in an academic setting. As a result, Briggs & Stratton engines are chosen as the final output of a simulated production assembly line in the laboratory. In addition, the students use 140-piece tool set to work on the engines. This webinar describes the process of setting up the lean manufacturing laboratory, the activities conducted each week, along with discussing the challenges, potential solutions and key lessons learnt.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Material and infrastructure required to setup the lab from scratch
  2. Cost to setup the lab
  3. Assignments developed over the semester to facilitate learning on lean manufacturing concepts and meet program outcomes
  4. Advantages of using real engines and toolkits to simulate production assembly line
  5. Challenges and key lesson learnt
  6. Potential future extensions of the laboratory to other courses
  7. Application of the laboratory in an industry setting
