Join Richard Chua for an in-depth discussion in this video Value stream mapping, part 2, part of Operational Excellence Work-Out and Kaizen Facilitator.
- Now that you're finishing mapping your value…stream in a Kaizen event, we move on to analyzing…the value stream for opportunities.…For the analysis session, here are a few tips.…Examine the summary timeline and portals…for the value stream.…Notice if there is a huge difference between…portal lead time and portal processing time.…Compare the throughput rate to the tack,…or customer demand rate.…Is the end-to-end process producing fast enough…to keep up with demand?…How good is the quality of the end-to-end process?…In other words, what is the raw throughput yield,…or RTY, of the value stream?…With this understanding of the big picture,…you can then drill down to identify the culprits…of poor performance, the processes…or major process steps with long lead times…and high defect or rework rates, and determine…if there are any glaring wait times or high WIP,…or work in process inventory, between major process steps.…
If necessary, conduct workload and cycle time…analysis against tack time on the deficient process steps.…
Note: This course does not cover general meeting facilitation. It is specific to planning Work-Outs and Kaizen events. Any prerequisite training in the Operational Excellence and Six Sigma learning paths should be completed beforehand.
- Determine the purpose of a generalized scope statement.
- Identify the step in an agenda that tells participants if they are needed at the event.
- List the sections of a detailed agenda used to map a value stream.
- Name three helpful ways to generate solutions after mapping the value stream in a Kaizen event.
- Recognize when an FMEA workout is necessary.
- Recall the purpose of a solutions workout.
