Spring 2020 Lean Certificate

Mississippi State University’s CAVS Extension in Canton, MS is pleased to announce Lean Certificate offering. The Lean Certificate class will
be split between MSU’s campus and the CAVSE Center in Canton, MS. The course objective is to develop participant skills in the recognition
and elimination of “Waste”, and to improve “Flow” in their operations. Participants will apply these techniques on an approved project.

Participant Involvement:
The training will consist of 4 two-day sessions (i.e., 64 hours of class time) scheduled during a four
month period. Each participant is required to implement techniques and tools on an approved project that targets substantial benefits to their respective organizations. Each participant will receive consulting support both in and outside the classroom to assist
with the successful completion of their project. It is anticipated that significant work outside the classroom will be expected
in order to ensure maximum results from the student project. The goal of each participant is to develop project results that are
commensurate with satisfying the project requirements of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers Bronze Certification. SME conducts
certification examination independently of this training.
Who Should Attend: Manufacturing Engineers, Quality Engineers, Industrial Engineers, Mechanical Engineers, Engineering
Managers, Plant Managers.
