PCourse ®

P stands for People, Practice and Production: get the gemba ”know how” to make your Lean transformation effective.
“The course was so interesting, but having it applied at our place will be a hard trial …”. How many times back from a training course you have heard words like these or had such thoughts?

The PCourse ® is a training program with strong practical value, focused on Industrial Engineering. The ”P” in PCourse ® stands not only for “Production”, but also ”Productivity”: departments as classrooms, their problems become the  training focus in the field.
From the theoretical and practical sessions of training on the job through the understanding, analysis and the application of several industrial engineering principles and techniques, the results are a real and measurable reduction of wastes (muda) , i.e.of losses in production departments.

The PCourse ® was born in the 50s and was initially provided by Mr. S. Shingo of JMAC (JMA at the time) for Toyota Motor Corporation and other companies in Japan. As of today hundreds of PCourses have been paid by JMAC all over the world.
The PCourse ® caters to all manufacturing companies, proposing methods, techniques and indicators applicable to labor-intensive production systems (manual assembly) as well as to capital intensive (equipment process based) productions. The curriculum involves a combination of theoretical sessions (classroom) and practical training in the shopfloor, to ensure effective learning with immediate application of the contents by the teams of attendants, who measure the results and any related benefits obtained in the field.

PCourses  allow:

  1. > real growth of the Industrial Engineering skills in the company (as the backbone of operational excellence and Lean transformation)
  2. > the intergation of ”know how” with the knowledge delivered in more “traditional” training programs
  3. > the application of operational work in teams
  4. > the achievement of results and measurable benefits for the company.
