We’re about to start our first Community Action Partnership program in Louisville, Kentucky. This is a special version of ILS’s Lean Systems Certification Series that we’re doing onsite with three host companies. Each week of the series has a different focus and is hosted by a different company in their facilities. First up is Linak-US, maker of linear actuators, the device used to make adjustable hospital beds and other furniture adjustable!

Week 1 (August 24 – 28) focuses on Systems, so we’ll be learning about Value Stream mapping and analysis while we actually create a value stream map at Linak.
