Value Stream Mapping Intermediate
There are three modules each of which are 4 hours long.
Drive waste out of the product/service development process
Module 4: Introduction to Lean Product Development
Module 5: Introduction to High Mix / Low Volume Applications
Module 6: Monetizing the VSM / Shopfloor Return on Investment
VSM - Introduction to Lean Product Development
Today, speed to market can be everything. Design teams need to be flexible, fast and effective. Applying lean in product development requires optimizing the growth of knowledge about product, customer and manufacturing. This workshop is an introduction into lean product development. It is a practical approach for accelerating time-to-market through waste elimination in planning, resource management, design control and interdisciplinary communication.
Describe and explain how to:
Improve product/service execution
Apply visual management to the product service development process
Use customer defined value to separate waste from value-add
Level load the product development process means
Use standardization to reduce variation and improve on predictable outcomes
Organize to balance expertise and cross-functional integration
Develop competence in engineers
Apply the above to value stream mapping to target improvement options
VSM - Introduction to High Mix / Low Volume Applications
Small companies generally have a complex environment driven by relatively small orders of a large variety of different parts from many customers. Changes in customer demand seem to happen frequently making it difficult to smooth production. The purpose of this workshop is to show how to apply the various lean tools and techniques to the world of varying cycle times, a large mix of products, small orders and changing customer demand.
Determine the pacemaker operation and the use of takt time
Determine if the equipment can support takt time and decide on the interval
Describe use of operator balance charts and balance flow through the pacemaker for mix
Level production by using pitch and dealing with changing customer demand
Describe how to schedule the mix of products effectively (calculations involved)
VSM - Monetizing the VSM/Shopfloor Return on Investment
Are you asked to justify lean improvement projects by showing Return On Investment (ROI)? Do you need to determine before lean implementation begins what the savings could be? Have you tried to put dollar values to value stream improvements? This workshop will explore how to monetize your value stream improvement impacts using the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA)/scientific method to provide a learning approach to achieve targeted goals.
Identify and justify lean implementation initiatives by:
using value stream mapping,
calculating Return-on-Investment financial impacts, and
highlighting non-financial benefits for long-term viability
