All assignments will be turned in on the day designated during class time for the course. Late work will be accepted at a reduced value. One class late will reduce value 25%, two class periods late will reduce value by 50%, three class periods late 75%. NOTE: Extended absence is grounds for a failing grade.Course SyllabusWilliam E.

The principles of Lean Manufacturing will be an integral portion of course works. Emphasis will be placed on the application of supply chain strategies to integrate demand management in the supply chain. Students will gain hands-on experiences in the application of these concepts into student projects. Writtenand visual communication skills are considered necessary for success in this course.COURSE OBJECTIVES:Upon completing the course, the student will be able to:1. Describe how to integrate demand management in the supply chain2. Demonstrate and use the requisite analytical tools in supply chain management3. Produce a value stream map4. Identify the elements of a 5S program and demonstrate implementation5. Identify current issues and problems which affect production efficiency and suggest methods in which they can be resolved.6. Identify current issues and problems which affect supply chain efficiency and suggest methods in which they can be resolved.7. Define Lean as a business system8. Design a manufacturing mistake-proofing procedure.9. Identify and suggest methods for reducing or eliminating the seven wastes in manufacturingWEC 09/07 MET 345 110.Identify safety hazards in a given manufacturing environment and suggest methods for mitigationASSESSMENTObjective Assessment StrategyDescribe how to integrate demand management in the supply chainAssessed through written homework assignments and examinations.Demonstrate and use the requisite analytical tools in supply chain managementAssessed through written homework assignments and oral report of MIT Beer Game analysisProduce a value stream map Assessed through homework assignments, and laboratory experiments Identify the elements of a 5S program and demonstrate implementationAssessed through homework assignments, and laboratory demonstrations.Identify current issues and problems which affect production efficiency and suggest methods in which they can be resolved.Assessed through homework assignments, and group kaizen eventsIdentify current issues and problems which affect supply chain efficiency and suggest methods in which they can be resolved.Assessed through application to laboratory production supply chain supplierDefine Lean as a business system Assessed through written homework assignments and examinations.

One class late will reduce value 25%, two class periods late will reduce value by 50%, three class periods late 75%. NOTE: Extended absence is grounds for a failing grade.1. No make-up assignments or examinations will be allowed unless provisions for circumstances are made in advance of the date in question.WEC 09/07 MET 345 22. All written work will be evaluated on the following criteria:a. neatnessb. spellingc. content qualityd. completeness3. Please ask questions if assignments are unclear. Students are responsible for reading assigned materials and attending class. Accordingly, you must have a classmate to share notes with if class is missed. The final responsibility for misunderstandings and late work rests with the student.4. Points will be assigned for each student’s work. The total points obtained throughout the course will then be evaluated according to the following chart:A 100-92% A- 90-92%B+ 88-90% B 82-88% B- 80-82%C+ 78-80% C 72-78% C- 70-72%D+ 68-70% D 62-68% D- 60-62%5. Missing class is not “OK”. Discussion questions, safety instruction, and instruction on equipment and instruments are all valuable and should not be missed. Absences cause expensive wear and tear on equipment, supplies and facility. Demonstrations on equipment and technique will not be given over.6. Students are expected to perform ongoing cleaning and minor maintenance on equipment in the laboratory if used in this course. Work areas should be straightened up and clean before leaving the lab area.7. All written work will be typed or word-processed double-spaced, with 1” margins. Papers will be stapled in the upper left-hand corner.8. Appointments can be directly made with the instructor or via E-Mail.10. “Close” grades will be determined by attendance patterns, enthusiasm and willingness to learn.Course Assignments:Beer Game 10%Homework assignments 20%Exams and Final 30%Group Project 30%Participation – involvement 10%WEC 09/07 MET 345 3Homework: Homework is required in this course.
