Lean Manufacturing Simulation Game

This fun simulation game compares scheduling methods:

   * MRP (Material Requirements Planning)

   * KBLM (Kaizen Based Lean Manufacturing)

People learn better when they actually do something (rather than just read or hear about it).

Lean Simulation Game

As participants build 20 Lego towers, the objective of this action-based learning experience is to demonstrate the benefits of lean flow methods, with lots of hands-on learning, and outside-the-box thinking questions.

Systems2win does not resell this Lean Simulation Game. You can purchase it from Business Basics, LLC, which is owned by Bill Gaw, who is also the facilitator for the LinkedIn Lean Manufacturing Forum.

When I participated in this simulation hosted by Bill, there was lots of laughter and questions, and you could just see the lights clicking on as each participant arrived at their own "aha" moments.
