This session will introduce you to Systematic Layout Planning (SLP), a universal, step-by-step method for planning any kind of layout.  The SLP method is used throughout the world and is a popular, time-saving tool in Lean and Six Sigma programs. You will learn the phases and steps of the SLP procedure and see it demonstrated in a simple on-screen example.  The presenter will also discuss classical types of layouts, ways to organize industrial space and when to use each.  This presentation will include checklists for lean layouts and principles of lean layout planning.
