Re: Kaizen Event - Which tools to use?

I don't know how your on time delivery numbers are tracked and analyzed, but if valves affect that number at all then you should be able to find some data, or somebody willing to provide anecdotes to support that. In the absence of hard data a conservative estimate works for me.

In the Kaizen I've found that having somebody play the role of "clueless outsider" is valuable. A different perspective comes in handy - somebody who will ask "How come I can see the emperor's butt in his new clothes" when everybody else won't. Or will ask "But WHY have we always done it that way ?"

Re: Kaizen Event - Which tools to use?

I use BMGi's SCORE methodology to structure the kaizen event.
SCORE stands for


those are the preparation stages


and finally post-implementation stage


for each phase BMGi has recommended tools to use, you can visit thier site for free materials. But as for me I did not adopt it.
As is always the advise in these forums, you need to customize based on your organizations' culture, needs, and current capability.
For me it's not what you can teach, it's what the organization is ready to absorb and use.
