Digital Lean Introductory Workshop

Learn how to boost business productivity with Industry 4.0

Facilitated by Callaghan Innovation manufacturing expert Robert Blache, our free Digital Lean Introductory Workshop will explore how to expand on existing Lean capabilities and maximise use of digital technologies through Digital Lean. 

The interactive workshop is for businesses that already have a Lean culture in place, and will explore how our Digital Lean programme can boost your competitive advantage through Industry 4.0, the fusion of technologies that’s blurring the lines between the physical, digital and cyber-physical. Callaghan Innovation’s co-funded Digital Lean programme (you pay 60%, we pay 40%, up to a maximum of $20,000) provides access to a specialised service provider to help your business build capacity over a maximum of 12 months.

The three-hour workshop will include:

  • A brief overview of basic Lean concepts
  • A hands-on exercise based on a real-world case study to identify Lean capabilities and extend them to Industry 4.0 solutions
  • Industry 4.0 success stories
  • Examples of how Industry 4.0 is an extension of Lean principles
  • Tips on identifying Industry 4.0 risks and mitigating them
  • Examples of Digital Lean benefits and how to maximise opportunities
  • Advice on implementing Digital Lean in your business and what to ask service providers.
