Error Proofing

Discuss and define clear expectations of your business, department, team or project. Understand the output and be sure all stakeholders have consensus. Whether your output is product, process, data or consulting, the management process is very much the same when working in a team. Once consensus on an output is gained, benchmark how world-class organizations perform the “Go-See” walk, otherwise known as Gemba in the Toyota Production System. The Go-See walk allows you to observe processes in real time, current state environments.

Workplace Visualization

Almost 70 years ago, Japanese engineers developed a manufacturing system to pull through workflow and reduce waste and error.  Today, we know this system widely as the Toyota Production System.  Many businesses employ versions of this in proprietary or standard bench-marked ways.  Lean Manufacturing, Lean Six-Sigma, JIT and Pull Systems are all terms for this system we are familiar with.  Continuous improvement and reproducible results are the key goals that drive staff to find inefficiencies and error prone processes.  At LaunchWorks Manufacturing Lab, we have found that successful implementation of visual workflow is a great start towards a lean culture, which engages each employee at all stages of the value stream.  The following is a recommendation on how to start.  Subsequent updates will work through five more steps of organization that can lead you on your way to a fully integrated, low maintenance, high-yield workflow.
