  • What are the basic metrics needed? There are five, with a “really nice to have” sixth metric. With these few metrics you can learn a great deal about a process, and don’t sweat how accurate or precise they are up front. That is something through additional work you figure out but getting even rough numbers up front are enough to get some real progress going. With emphasis- having these with a 95% or better confidence level is not a pre-condition to move on. Here is the definition of the 6:1) Cycle Time - what is the mean or median total time for an activity, or step in a process to be executed? could be data entry, call handle time, etc.2) Lead Time - What is the total mean or median time, defined by the process owner or company, that is required to meet the customer demand? The term backlog comes to mind, and the motivation for companies having SLA’s for their vendors (or customers). This is the fundamental measurement of your commitment to deliver to a customer (or the commitment you expect as a customer).3) Throughput Time - What is the total mean or median time from the absolute beginning to the absolute end of a process. The summation of Cycle Times. Key metric to use for the notion of continuous improvement.4) “Nice to Have” Takt Time- The time the customer expects a given process output to be delivered to them.5) Work In Progress (WIP) - This is the volume of transactions or widgets in a process. An invoice, A report, a car, whatever it is your process is built to deliver.6) Number of Operators - Number of process consumers participating in the process to create and deliver the good or service. Claim Specialists, HR Specialists, etc.With these few metrics you can start to get a picture of how the process performs. There are other metrics like good versus bad process outputs (such as number of defects, think bad invoices, bad orders, etc) but up front these will really get things moving along. For instance, you will see as you look horizontally what steps quite possibly should be left alone versus the one or two that you need to remediate to promote flow. Processes which execute faster have few defects by and large. So how do I start getting these?Value Stream Mapping is almost always the defacto starting point to then bridge metrics against processes and their activities. Let’s look at an example, this does not use standard Lean notation. This VSM was made with Lombardi’s Blueprint product. What is important is not the iconography but rather being able to see the big picture and relative detail in one view.
  • Narisha Sirius In what has been a particularly turbulent period for Sirius in the last two months, they still find the budget to keep an FYI resource on site full time. The relationship we have dates back to when we migrated all their Business Objects reports onto Cognos ReportNet a few years ago. Today we have a self service initiative that is taking the responsibility of report creation out of the hands of IT and empowering the business users. Part of that initiative involved a demo on CAFÉ that moved the BI director to engage Cognos on the licenses for the product. Under obvious budgetary constraints those plans have been put on hold, but Jim Hinmans vision is to empower the business users through implementing a BI solution that uses the right product for the right information consumer!
