Empowering your leaders to continuously improve
for ALL of the following types of challenges that you might encounter on your lean journey
If you haven't yet started your lean journey, then you're probably doing a lot of fire fighting.
Your Systems2win Process Improvement Tools include templates and training for a wide variety of Problem Solving Tools to empower you to professionally handle a wide variety of diverse types of problems.
PDCA, A3, 8D, kata coaching, Kaizen Events, and more problem solving methods,
Is it your job to put out fires?
or to prevent them?
At some point, you might grow weary of fire fighting.
When your team is ready, there are templates and training for every step of your lean journey to lean transformation.
Tip: The place to start is not Hoshin Planning.
The place to start is Value Stream Mapping.
Not just value stream mapping tools.
Value Stream Analysis, with scenarios, filters, and math that Visio simply can't do... to analyze capacity, optimize changeovers, calculate guaranteed turnaround times, answer 'what if' questions, and remind your team leaders of the right questions to ask every time that you lead another value stream mapping event to continuously improve your (real world) high mix / low volume value streams.
With online training and videos to guide you through every step of the value stream mapping process.
The right tools to
Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control
your value stream maps
(not just draw them)

Process Improvement Tools
Should we make or buy?
Make or buy?
There are continuous improvement tools to analyze, stabilize, visualize, and standardize every process in every value stream.
There are Process Analysis tools to analyze and improve diverse types of processes for Lean Manufacturing, Lean Healthcare, and Lean Office and Service processes (that are common to every organization).
The Standard Work tools, however, are arguably the most important tools in your continuous improvement toolkit.
Not just the Standard Work template, but also the Yamazumi Chart, Spaghetti Diagram, Machine Balancing, Standard Work Audit, Standard Cost Estimating, and more.
These are the Standard Work tools that "rachet your gains."
If your (lack of) plan is to just allow people to quickly backslide into old habits, then why even start?
It would be better to simply explain to your investors that "lean methods won't work here", without putting your team members through the pain and embarrassment of an experiment that was destined to fail before you even started.
Who needs standard work?
What's so wrong with backsliding into old habits?
Lean processes require quality.
You can use the 'Insert Sheet' button to add a chart to any Excel workbook that contains your data. And you can do what you always wanted to do with those other Excel macros that you struggled so much with...
you can link your data so that your chart instantly updates as your data changes!
You have the 7 Basic Tools of Quality, (including Excel Pareto Chart, Run Chart, Trend Chart, Histogram, Scatter Plot...) as well as many more DMAIC tools to Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control the quality of ANY process.
The right DMAIC tools
to Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control
the quality of ANY process
There's only so much that your Quality Department can do. Their job is soooo much easier if your engineers attentively listen to the Voice of the Customer, and design your products and services more thoughtfully in the first place.
Your DFSS tools include an FMEA template that has useful features that you never even thought to ask for (and certainly couldn't program yourself). Each FMEA workbook can have an unlimited number of (perhaps interlinked) worksheets for Control Plans and Process Flow Diagrams.
And your FMEA's can be surrounded by an entire suite of supporting optional continuous improvement tools and systems, like the P-Diagram, Characteristics Matrix, DVP&R, and House of Quality QFD.
Why do we need an FMEA?
What could possibly go wrong?
Whenever you change person's work environment, you're going to need to re-train them.
Your templates include each of the TWI Training Within Industry tools that were popularized by the United States war mobilization to fight World War II.
And there are a suite of Lean Training tools for diverse training requirements that you might encounter.
The most popular lean training tool, however, is the Work Instructions template. It has special features that will dramatically reduce your time (and mistakes) when writing visual work instructions for a product or service 'family'.
It can auto-generate a separate sheet for every product or service in the family, correctly including or excluding steps, correctly renumbering steps, putting the correct header information at the top of each page, and has revision control that vary by product (or be shared by all products in the family).
If you need to write work instructions for any product or service family, you owe it to yourself to give this tool a test drive.
Why are we paying our people to re-invent tools, training, and systems that can be owned so easily?
