Creating Continuous Flow narrows the focus of Learning to See from the door-to-door value stream perspective to achieving true continuous flow at your critical pacemaker processes.
This new workbook explains in simple, step-by-step terms how to introduce and sustain lean flows of material and information in pacemaker cells and lines, a prerequisite for achieving a lean value stream. Creating Continuous Flow takes you to the next level in cellularization where you’ll achieve even greater cost and lead time savings.
- Where to focus your continuous flow efforts
- How to create much more efficient cells and lines
- How to operate a pacemaker process so that a lean value stream is possible
- How to sustain the gains and keep improving
