Lesson 306 – Step 4 Improve Process Flow

.

In the Level 2 – Lean Practitioner training course you learned how Step 4 – Improve Process Flow encourages an organization to identify any major constraints within their process flow. You also started to understand just how constraints control the velocity of products that traveling through the entire value stream, and the effect this has on scheduled delivery times.

In the Level 3 – Lean Expert training course, you will learn about the detailed application and integration of Step 4 – Improve Process Flow as part of a continuous process improvement methodology.

Transformation requires a plan and an infrastructure that is focused on waste reduction to improve value for the customer. It also requires a strong management team that is willing to support the process because the right kind of change does not happen by chance!

In Step 3 – Workplace Organization, you re-organized the work area to make it easier to find and replace items. In this next step, you will learn how to identify the constraints that slow down the process flow.
