Helicoptor Training Exercise

The pictures below document part of the helicopter exercise that was used in Lean Facilitator Training. Each participant was given the same instructions, but allowed to use different materials to build  helicopters in their own way. The flight time of each helicopter was then recorded and compared against its construction time. The materials and methods used to build the helicopters with the longest flight times and shortest construction times represent the best way to build a helicopter. This exercise was used to show the importance of standard work in achieving the highest quality product in the most timely and efficient manner. Kaizen Facilitator trainees work on group exercises.
