Purdue University Manufacturing Extension Partnership
Creating the metaverse for lean manufacturing skills
Purdue MEP specializes in assisting manufacturers in cost reduction, profit enhancement, and workforce training through expert consulting and industry-specific training. In collaboration with their HyperSkill, the company conducted a Phase 1 Lean training exercise simulation. Multiple students participated in an assembly line task to produce breadboards without Lean principles, resulting in inefficiencies. In Phase 2, Lean principles were partially applied, optimizing task layout for efficiency and logical sequence, showcasing the company's commitment to lean manufacturing skills development in a virtual environment.
