Classical learning in an engineering educational environment presents problems for most of students to understand in practice some engineering methodologies, especially lean manufacturing. Lean is a philosophy initiated by Toyota to eliminate waste, organize workplace and procedures to enhance productivity. The current paper compares efficiency between classical teaching method and learning by doing pedagogic process. The purpose is to propose a new manufacturing educational model based on previous works and return of experiments. A case study is established to support proposed model by measuring training efficiency and students’ creativity compared to classical educational tools. Future researches could use the proposed model in other educational fields.
