Accelerating Operational Excellence in 2015: Improving the Value Stream with Mobility

  1. 1. Accelerating Operational Excellence in 2015: Improving the Value Stream with Mobility
  2. 2. Addressing operations challenges Catavolt launched a survey titled “How Leading Manufacturers are Accelerating Operational Excellence” in September 2014, to gain insight on how manufacturing organizations are working to continuously improve their operations, workflows and business processes. We collected 111 responses from manufacturing professionals in various disciplines on trends and technology that are driving operational excellence. Increased competition in the market, meeting customer expectations, rapidly changing plant floor conditions, and the need to increase revenue, is pushing manufacturing organizations across all industries towards more efficient operational processes.
  3. 3. Manufacturing organizations are increasing operational excellence investments in 2015 •  Value stream maps for manufacturing give organizations a plan that details all the problems encountered in current processes and where to improve, in order to achieve positive results. •  New technology is giving manufacturing teams the ability to easily map their value stream, make process improvements, and identify bottlenecks in operations. •  With technology that provides real-time data for organizations, manufacturing teams can adopt processes that emphasize continuous improvement and eliminate wasteful processes and spending. 85% of manufacturing thought leaders plan to in- crease investments for operational excellence initiatives for their organizations in 2015. (Catavolt, 2015)
  4. 4. What is value stream mapping? : • Understand the current manufacturing processes and identify bottlenecks • excess of materials or inventory • poor or incomplete data
  5. 5. Why is value stream mapping important for manufacturing organizations? With value stream mapping, manufacturing organizations can: Identify opportunities to reduce process time and areas of improvement. Process steps and data Perform self-checks
  6. 6. Value Stream Mapping: The Current State A current value stream map in manufacturing enables team to see improvement.
  7. 7. Value Stream Mapping: The Future State A future state map in manufacturing en- ables teams to pinpoint ways to change current processes to reduce waste and make improvements internally.
  8. 8. Value Stream Mapping: The Ideal State An ideal state map in manufacturing en- ables teams to develop a shared vision of what the organization wants to achieve for their operations.
  9. 9. How mobility helps manufacturing organizations Mobility is a tool that helps manufacturing organizations reach their “ideal state” in value stream mapping. Value stream mapping is the process by which manufacturing companies identify areas for process improvements. By creating value stream maps, organizations can provide optimum value internally and to their customers, through a complete value creation process with mimimum waste. With mobility, value stream mapping is much more effective and easier to understand for manufacturing organizations. Mobility give teams access to collaborative communication tools and real- time data needed to visualize and analyze wasteful spending and delays.
  10. 10. The benefits of manufacturing apps • Provide real-time visibility in to processes bottom line • • of materials in real-time
