Local Students Take Part In LEAN Training

Breakthrough change events in LEAN should be celebrated; especially those that help develop the next generation of business leaders.

Sixteen high school students from the Pike County Career Technical Center (CTC) have earned their industry credentials through participation in the RB LEAN EducationTM “Basics in Lean” workforce preparedness program.

This three-day event, held November 12-14 at the Pike CTC, provided valuable information on LEAN manufacturing processes to the students. Lean manufacturing is a methodology that focuses on minimizing waste within manufacturing systems while simultaneously maximizing productivity.

This training is part of the Workforce Preparedness program, which is a coalition of Eastern, Western, and Pike CTC school districts. The program was created and led by RB Sigma, LLC from Mentor, OH. It was organized and sponsored by the Manufacturing Extension Partnership, which is part of the Business Development Network at The Ohio State University South Centers (@southcenters).

In addition to the invaluable skills and education gained, students were also presented with Congressional Achievement Letters from Representative Brad Wenstrup.
