This three-day course provides an in-depth understanding of Lean enterprise principles and how to apply them within your organization. Your Lean journey begins with a series of interactive simulations that demonstrate how each lean concept is applied and its impact on the process. Mapping the process flow and identifying the activities that add value from the customer's perspective is the cornerstone of this course. The class is then given a scenario and the students simulate the conversion from traditional to lean in a practical hands-on environment. The course also provides a structure for how to manage a lean process for continuous improvement. Participants will learn how to structure their organizations to support and continuously improve a lean process. Participants will also fully understand how to implement 5S within their plants and how to begin reducing setup time using the SMED process.
What You Will Learn:
The fundamentals of space environment, orbital mechanics, propulsion, and subsystem technologies provide an indispensable basis for system engineering. The introduced basic nomenclature, vocabulary, and concepts will make it possible to converse with understanding with mission planners, designers, operators, and subsystem specialists.
The extensive set of course notes provide a concise reference for understanding, planning, and designing space missions and operating modern spacecraft.
Course participants will learn:
- Common space mission and spacecraft bus configurations, requirements, and constraints
- Fundamentals of space environment and its effects on space systems
- Common orbits and velocity increments and propellant amounts for typical maneuvers
- Fundamentals of spacecraft subsystems and their interactions
- Elements of space mission system engineering
What you will gain:
Learn how to map the process flow and identify the activities that add value from the customer's perspective. You will learn how to structure your organization to support and continuously improve a lean process.
