Even if you’ve heard how to design basic value streams for a single product or single production line, how can you and your team apply these principles to your manufacturing plant with a variety of products and schedules? Learn how to go beyond the basics and design a value stream configured to your specific factory.

In this session, you'll hear, step-by-step, how to apply advanced lean techniques to design mixed model value streams that increase efficiency, quality and on-time delivery.

Based on Kevin Duggan’s best-selling book, Creating Mixed Model Value Streams, this webinar takes the concepts of value stream design to the next level by teaching participants the method for creating flow in factories that have a high complexity of products, demand, and shared resources.

Duggan will cover the following topics:

  • Determining true product families in complex manufacturing environments
  • Calculating takt time and takt capability for a mix of products with different volumes
  • Determining the interval at the pacemaker for a mix of products
  • Understanding techniques for balancing flow at the pacemaker

Join us November 1 to learn how to create a value stream of multiple product flows at the pull of the customer.
