The training Learning to See: Thinking & Value Stream Mapping, carried out by Staufen.Táktica, on May 13 and 14 at Martin, in Campinas (SP), surpassed the expectations of the participants. Directed towards managers and professionals in the areas of Planning, Industrial Engineering, Production, Continuous Improvement and Material Management, the training held inside the Martin factory had put theory and practice together during the production period. "Martin is a Staufen.Táktica client and is starting its lean journey. Opening the factory doors means enlarging our expertise in this area, bringing other visions, which can contribute to our daily routines and increase our capacity, " emphasizes Priscylla Margreth Mandato, Process and Continuous Improvement Manager of the company, which had participated in the training. To Adames Tadeu, Lean projects assistant of Voith Hydro, the fact of Martin permitting the training inside their factory represents a significant differential, "the consultants brought a holistic vision, and targeted the content for easily seeing the process as a whole". "The training overrode the goal through the balance between practice and theory. In fact is in practice that we find the difficulties and is the theory we can go straight ahead with, "said Luis Carlos Zuim, Product Support Engineer of Parker Hannifin. During the trainings the Staufen.Táktica consultants, Adílson Ahverner and Nilton Marchiori, had addressed the lead time sustainable reduction, the safety in production processes, waste disposal through the effective optimization, and material flow integration and information. Participants had also formed two groups for a case study in value flow analysis. "All participants engagement was very positive these couple of days, many of them observed the training was different because they had the opportunity to live the mapping in practice, which caused them to understand the whole process. We were pleased with the interaction and contributions, " said Adilson Ahverner, consultant of the Staufen.Táktica. Vicente Coelho, lean Manager of Schott do Brazil since 2010/2011 when Schott brought a Staufen Germany consultant to initiate the company Lean project, decided to participate in this training in Martin. "My intention is to get expert in some gaps and apply the learning in a particular area of the company. Exchanging experiences with other participants was positive, always helps, " he added.
