Lean Diary #04

This week we made major progress in implementing our Lean House for the Shopfloor in one area. With a team made out of operators from different shifts and myself we standardized three groups of necessary packaging items (6S step 2), made the first 6S standard (6S step 3+4) and evaluated the standard work sheets based on the developed Process map (standard work step 3), where we found that 33% of operator tasks are not documented at behavioural level.

Also, as a result from our 9 day Lean training, a group of participants introduced the communication cell in the same area and we simulated the link between kamishibai (mini-audit), Kaizen (improvements) and the communication cell. (Both the kamishibai results as well as the Kaizen resulting from those results are visualized on the communication cell.)
