Sort Eliminate all unnecessary tools, parts. Go through all tools, materials, and so forth in the plant and work area. Keep only essential items and eliminate what is not required, prioritizing things per requirements and keeping them in easily-accessible places. Everything else is stored or discarded. Set in Order Arrange the work, workers, equipment, parts, and instructions. In such a way that the work flows free of waste through the value added tasks with a division of labor necessary to meet demand. Shine Clean the workspace and all equipment, and keep it clean, tidy and organized. At the end of each shift, clean the work area and be sure everything is restored to its place. This step ensures that the workstation is ready for the next user and that order is sustained. Standardize Ensure uniform procedures and setups throughout the operation. Promote interchangeability. Sustain Make it a way of life. This means commitment. Ensure disciplined adherence to rules and procedures of 5S to prevent backsliding. Using this 5S Methodology and the tips based on a real experience you will get extraordinary results.

Other videos on Value Stream Mapping here: http://www.leanvlog.com/tag/value-stream-mapping/ Join us @: http://www.patreon.com/leanvlog Value Stream Mapping Multimedia Guide: http://leanmanufacturingpdf.com/value-stream-mapping/ Value Stream Mapping PDF: http://leanmanufacturingpdf.com/downloads/value-stream-mapping-pdf/ Follow us on: Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/company/27008569/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LeanLab-146290372099121/ ### Here the Transcript of the video #### Hi! You are viewing the first Value Stream Mapping tutorial ever! This tutorial will teach you the basics of the Value Stream Mapping, and at the end of these video lessons, you will be able to draw your first Value Stream Map. The tutorial is made of video lessons that will cover the principal elements of the value stream mapping, and in the notes of the video, you will find bonus materials. Each video is a lesson. Let us start here with the first concepts. Why Value Stream Mapping? The main reason is that if you focus on one process and not on the whole system, your customer could not feel the difference. Focusing only on one process is like to improve only the engine of a car by leaving the wheels deflated. So, to improve your company, you have to focus on the flow and the value of the entire stream and not only on one single point. Benefits of Value Stream Mapping. It is a collaborative tool. Can be understood by everybody. Help you to focus where it counts. You can see both Material and Information flow. Where to start Value Stream Mapping? There is no point to start mapping the entire company. It is important to start where you can get results quite immediately. So, the best place to start is where a customer is unhappy or on SKU's that give the company a significant income. For example, if the company sell the SKU 1234 that generate an annual income of 10.000$ and the SKU 5678 that generate 500.000$, I will strongly suggest mapping the second one. Ok! Now you know why to use the value stream mapping and where to start. Let me now explain you other points. 1) Map by walking and with sheets and pencil. It is not a PC exercise. Walk the shop! 2) Map yourself entirely and starting from the end of the stream. This will help you to better understand the process. 3) Do not rely on the data in the system. Look for reality, speak with people. 4) The point of the Value Stream Mapping is not the map itself but genuinely understand the process looking to material and information flow. 5) Draw the current state. Do not jump to solutions. It is everything for now. In the next video, I will describe you the first element of the Value Stream Map - The Customer Demand.

What is OEE - Overall Equipment Effectiveness
What is OEE is a great video created by a group of Lean Thinkers. Do you want to join us? http://www.patreon.com/leanvlog Here the transcript of the video. ######################### What is OEE? OEE means Overall Equipment Effectiveness, and it is a proven way to monitor and improve process efficiency. OEE is a diagnostic tool. It does not give you a solution to your problem. It is a KPI that measures effectiveness and deviations from effective machine performance. You can use OEE in TPM and Lean Programs. The goal is to reduce the six big equipment-based losses: 1) Equipment Breakdown 2) Setup and Adjustment 3) Minor Stoppage 4) Reduced Speed 5) Start-Up Scrap 6) Product Scrap OEE represents the percentage of good production time on the selected equipment. The six big losses can be grouped into 3 categories: A) Availability Loss B) Performance Loss C) Quality Loss and the OEE can be calculated as: OEE = Availability x Performance x Quality Remember! Use OEE as an improvement KPI and not as the final goal of your company.

Coaching vs Mentoring
The difference between coaching and mentoring are highlighted here. This video was made in collaboration with www.flmlean.com. Here the transcript of the video: Coaching vs Mentoring In this video, you will learn the difference between Coaching and Mentoring. # Points in Common Coaching and Mentoring are used to nurture employees' skills and achieve business objectives. Both are used to challenge and help individuals change the way they work, identify and solve problems, make decisions, overcome obstacles, and implement change. HOWEVER… There are 6 fundamental differences between coaching vs mentoring: 1. FOCUS Coaching is mainly concerned with developing skills and strategies to achieve shorter-term performance objectives. Mentoring focuses on personal growth and the continuous improvement of an individual's capability and potential. 2. FUNCTION Coaching is to help an individual achieve specific objectives. Mentoring is to develop mentees to a point where they can make mature and intelligent career decisions for themselves. 3. RELATIONSHIP In a coaching, the coachee is usually assigned to the coach, who assumes the responsibility for improving performance. In mentoring, the mentee often chooses the mentor. 4. AUTHORITY The coach is generally in authority and is in charge of managing the objectives to be achieved. Mentor is more highly ranked within the organization's business hierarchy but authority is tempered. 5. REWARD A coach's rewards are usually the form of value from the coachee's improved job performance. Coaches don't usually expect to learn from their coachees. Mentoring is a more reciprocal relationship. Both the mentor and mentee learn from each other and grow professionally. 6. AREA OF ACTIVITY Organizations use coaching when employees need help to achieve specific objectives or perform given tasks. Organizations use mentoring for broader purposes, such as developing managerial talent.

How to do Value Stream Mapping - Lesson 2 - The Customer Demand
#LeanVlog #Lean_Manufacturing #Value_Stream_Mapping How to do Value Stream Mapping is explained in this tutorial others video on https://www.leanvlog.com The link to the Lesson 1: How to do Value Stream Mapping - Intro https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fkk0hkunfcE&t=15s What is a Product Family: http://leanmanufacturingpdf.com/vsm-product-family-definition-pdf/ Pareto Chart Step by Step: http://www.leanvlog.com/pareto-chart-step-step-guide/ Here there is the transcript of the video: ########################## Hi! Welcome to the 2nd video on value stream mapping tutorial In this video, I will teach you the first element to draw in your value stream map: the customer demand. The first thing to remember is that we are here for the customer. We are not in the company for the department goal; we are here to meet the customers' demand and give them value! Are we on the same page? It is time decide which customer you want to start mapping. If you remember the previous video, I suggested starting with the customer and the SKUs that pays the bill. To select the SKUs you have to carry out a Pareto Chart and Group the SKUs in a product family. In the notes of the video, you can find bonus material on Pareto Chart and product family. Now, let us imagine you have selected the SKU 5678 that generate 150.000$ / year of income. These are the steps you have to follow. 1) Take one A3 sheet and one marker. 2) Draw a symbol of a factory 3) Write the name of the customer 4) Write the SKUs you selected 5) Write the demand (daily, weekly, monthly depending on the business) Once you have done it, stick this sheet on a wall of your office. Remember! Do not use the PC at the beginning! Now, I will give you a Pro Tip! # The customer demand survey. Once you have the customer request in front of you, call three colleagues that should know the customer demand and ask them to write you an e-mail with the last update. I bet you will be surprised by the answers. Could be the numbers will be very different. But are we here for the customer? So, if after this survey you discover that everybody knows a different number on the customer request you have your first kaizen event to carry out. KAIZEN EVENT: ASSESS THE CUSTOMER REQUEST ON SKU 5678. Ok, after this video you should have: A) Understood that the customer is king B) An A3 sheet with the customer demand written C) One survey about the customer demand performed and eventually a KAIZEN event planned. Do not underestimate the misalignment of the customer demand. How can you serve the customer if four people know different numbers? In the next video, I will speak about the 2nd element of the Value Stream Map. The Process Box.

Lean Strategy in 6 Points
Other Videos on www.leanmanufacturingpdf.com Before to start with a Lean Strategy you have to understand what is lean. Once you did it, you can follow this six steps. 1º - Resolve as much as possible the quality issues, as well as wasted time and other problems that produce instability in the flow. 2º - Make possible that parts flow as fast as possible with U shape cells, avoiding process variations. 3º - Process must be standardized as much as possible and stabilized along the different processes. 4º - Start using pull, don´t withdraw material till you get a demand from next process. 5º - Try to reduce production batches, increasing the deliveries and leveling the internal demand. 6º - Do Kaizen every day to improve the process. Is not easy and need a lot of work, but is possible. I did many times with fantastic results.

#LeanVlog #Lean_Manufacturing #Value_Stream_Mapping This is the 3rd video of our series how to do value stream mapping. Other Videos on https://www.leanvlog.com. Here the link to the others video. * How to do VSM - Lesson 1 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fkk0hkunfcE * How to do VSM - Lesson 2 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gvaK6ihETE&t=19s Support us on Patreon and Join other Lean Advocates: http://9nl.es/wgxm Finally, the transcript of the video here: Hi! Welcome to the 3rd video of the value stream mapping tutorial. In this video, I will teach you the second element to draw in your value stream map: The basic production process with the process box. The process box indicates a process where the material flow. Do you have to draw every single process? No! The rule of thumb is to draw 1 process box wherever the processes are disconnected, and the material flow stops. If a detailed process map is necessary, you could zoom in later on. The process box has the simple form of a rectangle with a title on the top. Walking into the shop during the value stream mapping, you need to draw the box and collect data that will be the starting point for the future state. So, for each process box, you need to connect a data box. The data box is a simple list of information you think is necessary. Here there is a list to get started. Cycle Time The time between two parts coming off the process. Change Over Time The time to switch from Product A to Product B Number of People It is the number of people you need "MINUMUM" to operate the process. Available Time How many minutes is the machine available in one shift for the Value Stream you are mapping? Uptime How many minutes is the machine not stopped for maintenance? Scrap Rate How many parts do you scrap in percentage? The list of information will be richer the more you draw value stream maps. Are you ok so far? Let us move to another important symbol: Inventory. As you walk the value stream, you will find places where the inventory is accumulated. You have to track it on the value stream with a warning triangle with an "I" in the middle and the number of pieces you see on the floor. Ok. Once you have done this walk, you should have a Value Stream Map that should appear as follow. Element 1 - The Customer Demand Element 2 - The process flow with the inventory icons and data boxes. In the next video, I will explain you the 3rd element of the Value Stream Map: The Material Flow.

Pareto Chart - Where to start the Lean Manufacturing
Where to start with Lean Manufacturing? The Pareto Chart is the best tool. See this video now and if you want start producing with us. https://www.patreon.com/Leanvlog Here the transcript of the video. Do you know the Pareto's law? It is an empiric law that merely states: "The 20% of the factors give the 80% of the results." What does it mean in the Lean Journey? It means that you have to address your resources where it counts. In detail: 1) You have to start the Lean Journey on the parts that pay the bill. For example, focus on the 20% of the SKU's generate 80% of the income. 2) You have to start a Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) program on the machines that set the pace. For example, focus on the 20% of the equipment that impacts the 80% of the output. 3) In a Lean Six Sigma project, you will discover the 20% of the factors influence the 80% of the desired characteristic. 4) Start mapping the biggest problems and make a Pareto chart. 5) Now you can easily see what problem is the biggest on the Pareto. It is proven that the Pareto's law applies in most of the cases. Do not start with a big program and tons of work hours and money but start by focusing on the 20% that give you 80% of the results.
