Critical Thinking: Applying Analysis Steps to a Situation
By Rosie Bunnow
The learner reviews steps in analyzing a process and applies them to a situation in his/her own work or personal life.
In a series of three interactive exercises, learners explore the relationship between process cycle time and defect detection, and between process cyle time and smaller batch sizes. The techniques of lean/JIT are applied to achieve the continuous improvement (kaizen) goal of reducing inventory by pursuing one-piece flow.
