The set of "lean" methods and tools, based on the Toyota Production System, now so widely applied in manufacturing organizations throughout the world, can also be adapted to non-manufacturing environments. Service, health care, construction, back office, sales, and financial organizations have all successfully used lean methods to streamline their repetitive processes by focusing them on the customer and by systematically eliminating waste.

You will learn how to stabilize, standardize, and simplify any set of processes using the power of the Toyota Production System. The presentation will cover: the importance of leadership and team-building to implementing change effectively; defining real value; the categories of waste and how to recognize them; defining work flow to uncover waste; standardizing work; and implementing continuous improvement. You will learn about the major lean techniques and tools such as: 5S, Kaizen events, Standard Work, just-in-time, Value Stream Mapping, and waste audits. You will also learn how to use these methods in concert to "lean up" organizational and cross-functional processes.

By the end of this presentation, you will be able to recognize whether the application of these methods could be of benefit to your organization. Challenge yourself to take a fresh look at how you are doing your work.

  • 27. Stabilize – Understanding Waste
    • Waste: Anything that Adds Cost or Time
    • without Adding Value
  • 28. What is Value?
    • Value is what, in its entirety , the product and service does to fulfill the expectations of the customer
    • Elements of value:
        • Performance
        • Price
        • Appearance
        • Reliability
        • Delivery
        • Features
        • Etc., etc.
  • 29. Understanding Waste: Overproduction
    • Overproduction – producing work prior to it being required is waste and is the greatest of all the wastes
    • Producing reports no one reads or needs
    • Making extra copies
    • E-mailing, faxing same document
    • Entering repetitive information on multiple documents
  • 30. Understanding Waste: Waiting
    • Waiting – for people, signatures, supplies, repairs, and information is waste. This is “low hanging fruit” which is easy to reach and ripe for the taking.
    • Unnecessary signatures or approvals
    • Waiting for others to complete tasks (bottlenecks)
    • Slow computer operations
    • Cross-departmental resource mismatches
  • 31. Understanding Waste: Motion
    • Motion - any movement of people, paper, electronic exchanges that does not add value is waste
    • Searching for computer files
    • Searching for documents in file cabinets
    • Repeatedly reviewing manuals for information
    • Hand carrying paper to another process
    • Walking to and searching for supplies or equipment
  • 32. Understanding Waste: Transport
    • Transport - the time to deliver any work within an operation
    • Locating commonly used equipment at a distance
    • Distributing unnecessary copies
    • Sending unnecessary attachments
    • Hand-carrying paper to another process
  • 33. Understanding Waste: Over-Processing
    • Over-processing - putting more effort than necessary into the work required by internal or external customers is waste
    • Duplicate reports or information
    • Repetitive data entry
    • Constantly revising documents
    • Revisiting agenda items
    • Specifying incomplete or unclear requirements
  • 34. Understanding Waste: Inventory
    • Inventory - work piles, excessive supplies, and excessive signature requirements are waste
    • Files awaiting signatures or approvals
    • Work awaiting task completion by others
    • Inadequate training of back-ups
    • Excessive office supplies
    • Storing obsolete documents or files
  • 35. Understanding Waste: Defects
    • Defects (or mistakes) - all processing required creating a defect or mistake and the additional work required to correct them
    • Data entry errors
    • Pricing errors
    • Shipping errors
    • Forwarding incomplete documentation
    • Lost files
    • Incomplete or incorrect customer service
  • 36. The Eighth Waste: Underutilization of people
    • Underutilization of People – the result of not placing people where they can (and will) use their knowledge, skills, and abilities to the fullest
    • Unbalanced work loads
    • High absenteeism and turnover
    • Diminished work capacity
    • Stunted skills development
  • 37. Stabilize – 5S
  • 38. Example of Applying 5S: The Computer Desktop Action Example Issues Sort Cluttered desktop; files everywhere Set in Order Inconsistent folder structure Shine or Scrub Old and obsolete files retained Standardize Each worker has his or her own folder scheme Sustain No audit system
  • 39. Stabilize – Value Stream Mapping
    • Value Stream Mapping – the visual representation of the processes (work units and information) required to meet customer demand
      • The core starting point for applying lean thinking
      • Includes both value-added and non value-added activities
      • Allows for “seeing” areas of waste in current state
      • Current state becomes the basis for improved future state
  • 40. Value Stream Mapping: Example of Current State
  • 41. Elements of Value Stream Mapping
    • Walk the product’s production path from beginning to end
    • Identify every sub-process in the material and information flows
    • Measure time of each operation within a sub-process
    • Record all waiting times
    • Draw a visual representation of how the material and information flows connect
  • 42. Value Stream Mapping: Example of Current State
  • 43. Creating the Future State of the Value Stream Map
    • Conduct a waste audit
    • Brainstorm ideas
    • Look for easy flow issues
    • Review “common sense” remedies
    • Use the basic Lean tools and update the map as you learn more
    • Keep going
  • 44. Value Stream Mapping: Example of Future State
  • 45. Implementing Lean is a Big Change
    • Leadership must set the course and commit
    • Involve all key people
    • Provide the necessary training and resources
    • Anticipate resistance and manage it
    • Communicate, communicate, and deliver
