Lean Academy / Politechnika Rzeszowska im. Ignacego Łukasiewicza


Lean Learning Academy in Rzeszów University of Technology

In Rzeszów University of Technology the Lean Learning Academy (LLA) is organized. The main goal of LLA is to teach students and company employees Lean tools that enable the introduction of Lean Manufacturing in enterprises.

This can be done using simple analytical methods and tools, or by using sophisticated computer systems that monitor production systems in real time and identify symptoms that may lead to problems and, consequently, waste.

The LLA team consists of specialists in various areas of Lean Manufacturing and Lean Management, with knowledge of modern technologies. We conduct lectures and workshops with students of "Management and Production Engineering" and "Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering" at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautic, and with students of "Automation and Robotics" at the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the Rzeszów University of Technology.

Besides, we deliver lectures for postgraduate students of "Quality assurance in aerospace manufacturing" and we offer courses for company employees on Lean Manufacturing.

Lean Learning Academy is developed in the cooperation with the following universities in the frame of the project "Lean Learning Academies", No 503663-LLP-1-2009-1-BE-ERASMUS-ECUE:
