This is an example of a competed lead time graphic worksheet.
Make ure each participant has a Lead Time form.
Explain:We are going to the floor and will document every step including the time it takes for each step for the identified process.
Have the participants look at only the area/process that has already been identified for this workshop.
If the process is long you may want to divide the group in two and have one start at the beginning of the process through the mid-point and have the second team go from mid-point through the end.
Document each of the process steps and the lead time. Also document for each step if it is value-added or non-value added.
Calculate the lead time and the percentage of value-added and non-value added. Document the calculations on the flip chart and post.
Document and post the base line calculations for productivity, lead time, inventory, and floor space as it exists now prior to the workshop completion.
