Hello!

I'm starting a project about Lean Manufacturing in my school and I'm not sure about some metrics. I would like to know what type of metrics are the best to measure the Lean Manufacturing. I need to define the objectives for the project and I would like to base them on the metrics.

Regards. :)

Welcome to the Cove :D

You need to first define what the lean strategy is intended to accomplish. Why are you doing it? What do you expect the outcome to be? Because there is no universally accepted definition of what Lean entails, what one company measures may be different from what another one does. Establish the objectives first, and then measure to determine the extent to which objectives have been met. If you're not sure what to measure, it means that your objectives have not been clearly defined.

Only one universal metric that can be used to measure anything in manufacturing.

PROFIT

After that it's all up to the user. I personally think that overall cycle time is a very good metric of how well you are doing in a lean environment. Actual cycle time (time from the beginning of the manufacturing process to the time you can hand it to the customer) will take into account many of your other metrics.

I'm sure that the value stream mappers out there will have an answer to this. Is there a metric that compares overall time to produce to actual in process time to produce??? I guess it would be a (value added process time) / [(non value added process time) + (value added process time)]. Is there a name for this ratio?

I do agree that PROFIT is the measure of all manufacturing,however in this case the subject is a SCHOOL! (my stand is clear- education should never be used to generate profit)

Neither the use of cycle time is relevant.

You still need to define what it is you are "making leaner"

Is it the total time to get an education? Of course you would need to define what your intended total education is)

Is it knowledge of some subject?

Is it cost per credit hour?

etc, etc.
