Apply Lean Thinking to Dynamic, High-Mix Manufacturing
CREATING MIXED MODEL VALUE STREAMS: Practical Lean Techniques for Building to Demand
Kevin J. Duggan

How can you apply value stream mapping and lean concepts to the more complex environment created by mixed model (high variety) manufacturing operations? CREATING MIXED MODEL VALUE STREAMS helps to address the challenges of high-mix manufacturing.

Topics Covered Include:
Mapping value streams in real-life manufacturing environments
Developing future states that can respond to daily changes in customer demand
Creating flow through the "pacemaker" process when products have different cycle times
Setting up mixed model heijunka (load leveling) boxes that provide visual schedules at regular intervals
Applying mix logic charts to determine finished-goods strategies and meet seasonal demand

The author uses a step-by-step approach, illustrated through a case study based actual experience, to go beyond the basics of value stream mapping and to show how to create future states in the real manufacturing world of multiple products, varying cycle times, and changing demand. The book includes a CD-ROM featuring useful spreadsheets for sorting products into families and calculating equipment needs.

Comprehensive and down-to-earth, CREATING MIXED MODEL VALUE STREAMS provides the details and techniques for implementing lean in the complex environment that manufacturers face on their own shop floors.
