MMEC announces 100 percent first time pass rate on rigorous Lean manufacturing certification exam

January 24, 2017View for printing

The Montana Manufacturing Extension Center's entire fall class of manufacturing professionals has passed the Society of Manufacturing Engineers Lean Bronze Certification exam on the first attempt.

Lean manufacturing is a business model that emphasizes the elimination of non-value-added activities across the organization. The bronze level topics include identifying and eliminating waste in processes, expanding capacity by reducing costs and shortening cycle times and understanding what is important to the customer. Bronze certification also covers how to apply the principles, concepts and methods in the workplace.

The exam is given following 80 hours of classroom instruction and hands-on learning, and the fall 2016 class in Bozeman was led by MMEC Senior Business Adviser Alistair Stewart.
