BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the Winter 2022 term as informed by BC Provincial Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.
This course is the first of 2 courses (also OPMT2710 - Lean Leadership) that will give the student the basic understanding of lean. Combined the two courses will deliver the Lean Body of Knowledge that prepares the student to write the ASQ/AME/Shingo Institute/SME Lean Bronze Certification exam. Lean used to be referred to as "Lean Manufacturing". It has since been proven that Lean is not just a "shop floor" thing. Lean applies in every type of business. This first course introduces the student to Lean Enterprise concepts, how and why it evolved and many of the tools used within a Lean Environment.
