The Lean Manufacturing Program (LMP)
The Lean Manufacturing Program (LMP) from QBIC supports organizations to scale their operations in order to assist them with manufacturing products and goods in Qatar.
Each LMP participant is trained to develop their ideas alongside invaluable insights provided by international experts and partners.
“It is a pleasure to see more aspiring entrepreneurs participating in the LMP. This is proof that we are steadily achieving self-sufficiency in line with the nation’s vision. Another successful wave of the LMP concludes today, but we are excited to continue supporting Qatari talent to achieve maximum potential within the manufacturing industry.”
The LMP initiative aids entrepreneurs and business owners to gather a thorough, hands-on understanding of the holistic manufacturing process through a series of practical sessions that are based on the lean methodology.
Participants are also introduced to digital manufacturing with their visits to the Fab-Lab at QBIC while a visit to Jahiz factories and QBIC industrial workshop allows them to receive advice and guidance from factory owners on how to scale their operations.
