Slide 8 of 26
Let’s take a look at the lead time reduction process and the graphic tool we use to display it.
(If the group has a reference booklet or cards with the graphic tool on it, refer to them.)
The lead time reduction is a 10-step process as outlined on the left of the slide.
The graphic tool illustrates steps 5, 8, and 10, and allows the team to focus on the elimination of waste. This visual is an excellent tool to constantly display in the worksite area as a demonstration of progress and objectives.
(Walk through the process and graphic, emphasizing the thrust to shrink the time/size of the boxes by concentrating first on the non-value added, and then the value added steps. Note that this is continuous improvement.)
(Depending on the group and their knowledge, you can walk through each step with the corresponding slide or skip the detail as being redundant. It is very effective to “tell a story” and do a charting demo.)
