  6. 6. Seeing The Workplace • After understanding the principles of lean the next step is to grasp the current condition of the workplace. • Material and Information Flow Maps are developed to analyze the workplace. To improve a • When mapping out the value stream it value stream is good to begin from left to right. you must first OBSERVE and • It is important to use your core team understand it. to gather accurate data based on the true condition of the workplace
  7. 7. Seeing The Workplace • Determine individual assignments for the project team. • Key Roles on the Project Team – Recorder to draw on flipchart, whiteboard, or piece of paper – Facilitator to keep meeting and project on schedule – Timekeeper to be responsible for collecting accurate cycle times and queue times • And any other relevant data • Determine the main processes for the value stream being focused on. – Draw a rough sketch of the entire value stream involving the whole team – Ensure everyone has the same value stream perspective.

  9. 9. Seeing The Workplace • Go to where the action is Utilize the GO-GO – You must understand where you are before you can decide where Philosophy you want to go Go see, go hear, go touch, • Don’t rush through this step – You will have to make changes go smell, and go taste along the way Genchi-Genbutsu – Don’t assume anything or use “standard data”. – Let the workplace speak for itself – Use a stopwatch – Focus on the most accurate and useful information – Think in terms of “flow”. Observe how work units and information move upstream and downstream – CRITICAL: Try not to think about solutions
  10. 10. Seeing The Workplace • Always collect the following data: – Total time per workday – Regularly planned downtime (meetings, lunch, breaks, etc.) – Available time: subtract regularly planned downtime from total time – Number of people working in the process – Quantity of work performed in one day by one person – Frequency at which work is delivered to the next process – Cycle time - the time it takes to perform a process one time or for one work unit to be processed – Queue time - the amount of time a work unit will wait before a downstream process is ready to work on it

  13. 13. Incorporating Lean Measurements • After creating your material and information flow map and gathering data we are ready to identify the best lean metrics to assist in achieving our lean goals. • The best way to get people to contribute to lean initiatives is to give them a simple means of understanding the impact of their improvement activities Lean metrics help drive continuous improvement and waste elimination.
  14. 14. Incorporating Lean Measurements • Lean measurements should be based on the seven deadly wastes. • As we dig deeper into the value stream, we can break measurements down into smaller pieces. • For example, total order cycle time could include the following: – Time spent waiting, walking, entering data, retrieving files, opening mail, and processing.
  15. 15. Incorporating Lean Measurements A B C D E 5m + 10m + 10m + 15m + 5m = 45m Queue Queue Queue Queue Time Time Time Time Cycle Cycle Cycle Cycle TOTAL Time Time Time Time LEAD TIME 240m + 480m + 480m + 480m = 1680m Total Cycle Time = 45m + Total Queue Time of 1680 = Total Lead Time of 1725 M = minutes 240m = 4 hrs (1/2 day) 480m = 8 hrs (1 day)
  16. 16. Incorporating Lean Measurements • Total lead time is 1725 minutes • Total lead time in hours – 1725/60 minutes = 28.75 hours • Total lead time in workdays – 28.75/8 hours = 3.59 workdays Value Added Percentage Total cycle time divided by total lead time - 45/1725 = 2.6% 2.6% of total lead time is spent on value adding activities
