If you are familiar with the Toyota Production System / Lean,
It is time to use tools for lean from Lean-Tool.com

"Standardized work is one of the most powerful tool in Lean / Toyota Production System.
Standardized Work Containing the current best practice, standardized work forms the baseline for Kaizen or continuous improvement. As the standard is improved, the new standard becomes the baseline for further improvements.
Improving standardized work is a never-ending process."


First step to KAIZEN (improvement).
Standardized Work is the basic foundation for improvement (KAIZEN) and to evaluate and find MUDA, MURA, & MURI.
There will be no improvement without standardized work.

Mindfulness and Leading with Respect
Mindfulness is both more essential today than ever, and a foundation for organizational lean excellence. Here John Shook and Mike Orzen explore this theme. “The more lean thinking you do, the more mindfulness you’ll experience, and the more mindfulness you create, the more presence you’ll create…and the more lean thinking you’ll do.”
Why don't I see any significant performance improvement from obeya rooms?
Dear Gemba Coach,We’ve deployed obeyas all across our organization, but I can’t see any significant improvement in our results. We can better see which teams perform and which don’t, but the good teams stay good and the poor ones poor and I’m not sure the increased performance is worth the effort – are we doing something wrong?
Why 'Yes Chef!' Is No Longer the Answer

Value Stream Mapping of a Complete Product

Introduction:

Lean Thinking, a concept that is based on the Toyota Production System, extends continuous improvement efforts to reduce the costs of serving customer/s beyond the
physical boundaries of a manufacturing facility, by including the suppliers, distributors
and production system that support the manufacturing function [Womack and Jones,
1996]. These improvements and cost reductions are achieved by eliminating the muda
(wastes) associated with all activities performed to deliver an order to a customer. Wastes
are defined as "all activities that consume resources (add costs to the product) but
contribute zero value to the customer." According to Womack and Jones, there are five
steps for implementing Lean Thinking in an enterprise: 1) Define Value from the
perspective of the Customer, 2) Identify the Value Streams, 3) Achieve Flow, 4)
Schedule production using Pull, and 5) Seek Perfection through Continuous
Improvement. Womack and Jones define a Value Stream as "the set of all the specific
actions required to bring a specific product through the three critical management tasks of
any business: ...problem solving, ...information management, ...physical
transformation". Alternatively, Rother and Shook define a Value Stream as "all the
actions (both value-added and non-value-added) currently required to bring a product
through the main flows essential to every product" [Rother and Shook, 1999, p. 3].


Overview of Value Stream Mapping

Value Stream Mapping (VSM) is the process of mapping the material and information
flows required to coordinate the activities performed by manufacturers, suppliers and
distributors to deliver products to customers. Unlike the traditional process mapping
tools used by IE's, VSM is a mapping tool that maps not only material flows but also
information flows that signal and control the material flows. This enhanced visual
representation facilitates the identification of the value-adding steps in a Value Stream
and elimination of the non-value adding steps, or wastes (muda). Using VSM, many
OEM's and their top-tier suppliers have changed their existing facility layouts, as well as
existing systems for material handling, inventory control, purchasing and scheduling, to
reduce the total throughput times of orders and current levels of work-in-process (WIP)
inventories.

Outline of this Paper

First, the concept of Lean Thinking is introduced and reviewed. This is followed by an explanation of the basic concepts of Value Stream Mapping (VSM), with a listing of the advantages and disadvantages of VSM. Specifically, it is shown that the original VSM methodology breaks down in the case of "multiple flows in a value stream that merge" in the case of complex product BOMs. Next, the development of the proposed approach, Value Network Mapping (VNM), is explained in detail. Finally, the results from an industry project are analyzed and the potential benefits of the proposed approach are presented.
