The Lean Engineering Research Group offers access to a range of decision support tools that include;
- Discrete event simulation modelling for improving facilities layout, scheduling rules, resource utilisations, buffer sizes and locations and inventory levels within both industrial and service organisations
- Creative problem solving for developing, implementing and sustaining lean interventions,
- Artificial intelligence modelling and optimisation for schedule optimisation and enabling drum-buffer rope control
- Cost modelling and carbon emissions estimating for enabling improved energy management
Also available are virtual reality environments for training personnel in lean 5S, standard operations development and synchronous flow.
