Abstract

Providing hands-on experiences to students is essential for lean workshops. But, most of the time, availability of a problem is a hassle, and even if there is one, it’s difficult to engage a large audience in a single workshop, especially in schools and colleges. Origami, the Japanese art of paper folding, can be used to provide students with a hands-on experience for understanding process thinking and process steps. The activity has the characteristics of a manufacturing process, and the end result of using this technique can be effective at conveying quality tools and concepts for all age groups.
