Implementing Standardized Work : Process Analysis (Paperback) (Alain Patchong)
about this item
Process analysis is the first tool needed to capture the initial situation before any improvement. Process analysis helps collect the "facts and data" that gives the overall production capacity of the process, shows all opportunities for improvement their amount and source. It is therefore possible to establish the target picture of the process condition and prioritize the needed actions to get there. This book uses numerous examples, charts and drawings to explain the deployment of process analysis and to convey the knowledge effectively.
This book explains how to measure the performance of operators quickly and simply, how to identify the most efficient operators, and how to monitor their improvement over time. The method described can be automated very easily, thereby requiring no labor consumption. The approach is grounded in one of the basic laws of factory physics: mastery of variability. The method presented here has been applied with success for years in automotive industry. It is a tool that should be used in the broader framework of Standardized Work deployment.
