Poor quality is the only one of the Toyota production system's Seven Wastes that stands up and announces its presence. The other six are usually asymptomatic, present 100 percent of the time because they are built into the job, and frequently more costly than poor quality. The Shingo process map, which evolved from value stream mapping, can use process flowcharts to quantify wastes of time, material, and energy to initiate corrective action to remove these wastes. It can thus become a living document that drives continual improvement as opposed to a once and done activity.
Areas Covered in the Session:
· Transformation (the only activity that adds value)
· Setup and handling
· Transportation, e.g. from one operation or process to another
· Waiting or delay. Include handoffs between processes because enormous wastes of time can otherwise hide here.
Who will benefit:
Manufacturing and quality professionals and practitioners; people with responsibility for continual improvement and lean manufacturing
