Simulated reality

Board of directors of a global corporation bought a distillery in Scotland with centuries-old traditions. The international Japanese company decided to use a recognized brand, but to enter into the factory with modern management methods.

The Whisky training combines attractive features of:

  • An effective training of process management according to Lean Manufacturing
  • A workshop integrating and building awareness of the employees in terms of improving the quality and efficiency of processes
  • A business simulation demonstrating in practice the process environment.

The simulated process in a the Whisky training is based on pouring colored sand into bottles. The use of such material can let experience the problems associated with manual handling of the process, thus:

  • qualitative deficiencies in the finished product (sand does not conform to the specifications, the bad proportions, uneven embankment, etc.)
  • maintenance of equipment and the effect of its absence (sand falls between the operating positions)
  • loss of material (sand simply spread on the table)
  • uncertainties and diversity of the operators, the implementation of the actual production takes time
  • impact of the organization of the work on efficiency
  • impact of topography of positions on the shop floor on carrying materials and tools
  • influence of improperly selected tools on time and the quality of technical operations (bad funnel, weight vague, ill-built mill and many others),

Manual operation also enables participants to better engage in the simulation as if it were the actual production hall.

The Whisky training is addressed to key specialists and managerial staff of companies in which:

  • DSC00082Timeliness and quality of service or production process determines the market position
  • There are problems with communication, cooperation, speed or cost of processes.
