    Leanmx This is just my opinion but you are going to lose management support with all your data plans right at day 1. To much detail. You need to spend some time (not a lot) how to deal with High A personalities. Any discussion with them over 10 minutes…[Read more]

  • Thanks strayer
    Well, maybe I didn’t explain it clear in my original post.
    There was a confusion regarding to use average values, which was cleared up my last post.
    What I want to do is what you do, to find NVA, I think the difference with what you do, in my opinion, is that I want to gather more data (time spent in activities, failures in Machines…[Read more]

    2 How I want to see them?
    Well once I gather all data,to draw the current…[Read more]

    Now I think is an error, I think…[Read more]

  • Thanks for your response, I´ll try to explain it, I include my comments below of each point.
    According to what I know, ok what I plan to do is a VSA (visual stream analysis), once
    having all the information captured, I´ll be ready to draw VSM (visual stream maps) current and future situations.

    1. You want to measure amounts of raw material f…[Read more]

    For example, I decided, to analyze 2 specific products: A and B

    This products are produced twice a month.

    I will try to capture data of t…[Read more]
