Welcome back to the gemba!
CHAPTER 3: TAKT TIME
List your main products/deliveries
For each of them estimate customer demand (for instance, for this masterclass, I estimate customer demand at one lesson a week)
Estimate your total available time
Per product/delivery, divide available time by estimated customer demand
Ask yourself: What does this rhythm tell us about what we need to do (if we weren't batching)?
Redo the calculation summing up all products/delivers: how often do I have to turn in something.
Ask again: how are we set up to follow that rhythm?
How do I
convince management to run to takt time, not as fast as possible?
What is the role of the sensei?
Are computer screens okay for visual management?
I'm a six sigma black belt and have now been asked to do lean. I'm not sure where to start with my team. Any advice?
