- Vert focused on the production part while the course is an overal philosophy.» (To some extent)
- The seminars were good from the point fo view that you could discuss different topics, however, they did not support you in your learning directly since the actual questions were not discussed. Questions you were not sure about was not brought up and hence, the overall learning of the calss were very different depending on the group"s questions. » (To some extent)
- However, the matrix in question 5 was a very specific question that has not been so much in focus during the course.» (Yes, to large extent)

- I don"t think this examination method is good. You have to spend the same amount of work if you aim for a 3 as if you aim for a 5.» (Yes, to large extent)

- The student portal is very unstable and bad compared with ping pong.» (Poor (Grade 2))

- Sometime in the seminar someone doesn"t speak anything. Some questions asked by student are not easy to be discussed,because no one knows the answers so that there is no constructive discussions. Also, there are some questions that are too easy to answer, everyone knows the answer so no needs to repeat that answer. » (To very small extent (Grade 1))
- As learning method, yes. Examination, no. » (To some extent (Grade 3))
- Yes but not that many!!!! I would understand the idea if more students did not take the actual exam but most people do and hence, more time to focus on deeper knowledge would be preferred. The teachers may think that they are doing us a favor to pass students without exam but most people want higher grades. » (To some extent (Grade 3))
- I appreciate the seminars much, however some questions especially in the last seminar (6) there where three questions which were stated in a way that made the seem to ask pretty much the same thing.» (To very large extent (Grade 5))
- Det är ett bra sätt att lära sig, men det var för mycket att ha 6 seminarium! Det tog för mycket tid!» (To very large extent (Grade 5))
- A very good concept, you learn continuously through the course» (To very large extent (Grade 5))

- The workload was too high to be able to read another course at the same time.» (Probably not)
- I would like it more if it was different from other courses we have studied. As well, the performance of Lars and his english was poor and hence, not very inspiring. » (Probably not)
- But it was very similar to the course production flow!» (Maybe)
- The contents of this course is brandly new knowledge and it can change people"s usual logic about production.» (Probably)
- I think the course gave me a greater insight in what lean is but also gave me a more critical view of it. I will definitely recommend it to others! » (Absolutely)

- It has no great relevance for my master program but I think it will be very good to have when coming out in the working life! » (To very small extent (Grade 1))
- Does not add much value in relation to previous courses. » (To small extent (Grade 2))
- But enough with either lean production or production flow. Not both.» (To some extent (Grade 3))

21. Lectures: What was good, what needs improvements and what would you suggest?

- The lectures could be made a bit more coherent. I feel that (the non guest-lectures) which where lead by several different lecturers often touched upon the same things so coordination could be better there.»
- The main literature, the Toyota book, was a very single one-sided, thus not critical at all. Although the papers and lectures sometimes contributed to a development of a more critical, sophisticated opinion, the book played a big role and is in general just a glorification of what Toyota does. »
- I"m not a fan of long and messy powerpoints. Keep it simply and avoid bad language.»
- Everything is good.»
- A practical class on creating future state maps. We only did a practical class for current stream and had a very brief lecture on future state. I see creating future state maps as a very important part of Lean.»
- Generally good. »
- The english and layout!! Too many slides saying pretty much nothing if you didn"t take proper notes at the lecture. As well, the english of the lecturer was not good and it was hard to stay focused. »

22. Seminars: What was good, what needs improvements and what would you suggest?

- Update the questions.»
- Reduce the number of questions and restate the questions in seminar 6. Feedback takes too long when there are many questions.»
- I would like more comments on how the assignment was, now it was basically pass or redo, would like to have a comment on what level I am on for the exam. »
- The combination of seminars, lectures, guest lectures and the book was good. Maybe there is some other literature, which could be integrated.»
- Too much reading for each seminar. Maybe some questions could be handins and have seminars with more questions if you aim for more than grade 3?»
- För många och för omfattande! Det tog väldigt lång tid att ta sig igenom materialet och att svara på frågorna. Jag tycker även att det ska vara bättre framförhållning på seminarierna så att vi studenter skulle kunna planera vårt arbete bättre. Det är inte tillräckligt att få frågorna mindre än en vecka innan de ska vara inlämnade »
- Usually the same people are speaking. One could put some effort into quiet the loud ones and lift forward the others by asking them about their opinions, etc.»
- Some questions were hard to answer with literature and could be reworked.»
- Sometimes hard to relate the questions to the literature, no clear connection.»
- During the seminars it"s possible to better understand the topic explaned during the lessons. Maybe too much papers to read.»
- Overall a very good concept. However, the readings were quite much for some seminars, especially from the book and I did not read all of them anyway, but still manage the questions. »
- Faster feedback, be clearer on what is expected. »
- Do less!! Takes to much time for other studies and also the group work. Take away the "pass without exam" and have less seminars. »
- I suggest that the questions prepared for the seminars are the ones that should be discussed in the seminar. Otherwise you do not know if the answer that you have given is appropriate or not. Perhaps what can be done is to agree to discuss those questions that everybody found harder, e.g. a couple of them. Then the time can be distributed between these and some of the questions that the students came up with.»

23. Group assignments (lean game, case and VSM): What was good, what needs improvements and what would you suggest?

- I heard that students went to a real company and draw the value stream map last year. I don"t know why it"s cancelled this year.»
- People that have been working with each other earlier are fast establishing groups by comfort. I think it could be good for everyone just to assign people to a random group for the group tasks.»
- Maybe more feedbacks for the VSM.»
- Very good, could have even more assignments like these. »
- Lean game - keep! »

24. What should be changed concerning the course?

- Lower workload.»
- Apart from what I"ve already mentioned I see no meaning with making the 5th seminar in groups. Shorten it down instead or find another medical lean case.»
- Start using ping pong instead of the student portal. For me and many other, the student portal has been very frustrating to use as it is very unstable.»
- I would prefer to change the way of seminar that students need to discuss the prepared questions given by teachers. It at least would lead to some consensus or conclusion, otherwise, the questions are too broad to discuss. Every question might only slightly touch certain field, but no contribution to form some solid knowledge for students.»
- Less articles to read or, at least, more time than one week.»
- Have the group assignments and seminars gradet, not only pass or fail. »
- As before, make the exam compulsory and reduce the amout of seminars to enhance the possibility to focus more time on case and group work. »

25. Comments and other remarks

- Very good course and topics.»
- I think it was a bit strange that we had a lean douse without using the 14 lean principles. The toyota way fieldbook didn"t used them at all»

Thank you for your participation and effort in this evaluation!
