Planning Lean Layouts: Material Flow Analysis for Lean Layout Planning
This session will show participants how to calculate the transport work associated with any plant layout. The presenter will show participants how to quickly calculate a flow index for comparing alternative plans. Case examples will range from high volume movement of uniform materials to low-volume, job-shop movement of diverse materials and assemblies. Using simple working forms and spreadsheets, the presenter will show how to collect, organize, interpret and present your flow data and estimates.
Note: This session stands alone but also explains the flow analysis steps in the full SLP method.
At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
Ideally, attendees have experience in measurement and quantification of material flow so that they may compare the techniques being presented to their own experience and approach.
