Digital Capability Center Salvador

Digital Capability Center Salvador provides Lean Manufacturing training programs to clients ranging from small and medium enterprises to large multinationals. McKinsey & Company and SENAI (Serviço Nacional de Aprendizagem Industrial) have partnered to build a fully functional factory with real products, operators, machines and a realistic performance management system.
As the first Digital Capability Center in the Southern Hemisphere, it was created to address Latin America’s greatest challenge to economic growth: stagnant productivity growth.

Cutting-edge lean experience training facility 

Cognitive studies show that “learning by doing” is the best method for teaching adults. A combination of theory and practice is proven to increase long-term retention by up to 80-100%. The Digital Capability Center Salvador offers comprehensive learning programs, which include both in-class theory and practice hands-on exercises, using the Model Factory facility as support. In addition to teaching world-class Lean tools and methodologies, the center explores performance management and shifting mindset and behaviors.

A typical training would start with “present state” that shows the production of a real pneumatic cylinder in a non-optimized way. During the training, participants learn how to reduce waste, map processes, solve problems and increase efficiency. Gradually, the factory evolves to the “future state”: a nearly optimized state, with less space, less human effort and fewer resources.

Customized lean training programs for companies from all sectors

The Digital Capability Center Salvador offers a wide range of customized training programs, which can range from one day to several months, to better fulfill participants' needs. The program is recommended for all levels of the organization, from senior executives, to experienced managers and frontline operators. In addition, due to an extensive set of training modules, we can develop customized workshops, tailored to the client’s needs.

This methodology can be applied in all sectors, including automotive, food and beverage, electronics, chemicals and textile, and service industries. The center inspires and enables clients to achieve lasting performance with breakthrough achievements.
