Dec. 17, 2012 - PRLog -- Now over a decade old, it has helped over 800 manufacturing managers to apply priceless knowledge to their business and create millions of pounds worth of productivity.  

ARTL effectively eliminates unnecessary waste and this has the obvious positive repercussions on efficiency and therefore bottom line gain. Many reputable companies have benefitted from the teaching of this course, none less so than Bombardier Transportation.

Bombardier are global leaders in rail technology and have seen their delivery performance rise from 24% to 90% since completing the programme. Their operator productivity has also gone up by 20% since their line and departmental managers undertook the ARTL course through TMI and started to apply what they had learnt to operations.

In a nutshell, the ARTL course focuses on the rapid transfer of skills through “learning by doing”, this delivers immediate business benefits. In-house expertise is then developed in order to create realistic benefits for the company in question. The understanding of best practice by staff is then achieved via a visit to a manufacturing site that is deemed as world class – this gives employees the perfect benchmark by which to base their own performances.

Once the course has been successfully completed, attendees are invited but not required to be evaluated as part of a company improvement project. This can result in a Lean Manufacturing Fellowship being awarded, this adds to any businesses credibility.

For further information on ARTL, there is a case study (link to case study) on the TMI site which focuses on the experiences of Liam Haslam who works in the automotive sector near the Peak District. This explains how the course is essential when working towards a lean facilitator role and enhancing knowledge of lean management in general.
ARTL takes place in Manchester starting on February 12th 2013 and can be completed by attending the course one day a week for ten weeks. For more information, visit
