Rapid Improvement Events (RIE)

Course video 19 of 29

Value stream mapping is at the heart of TPS or Lean. Using the Time Observation Sheets you will learn how to fill out a Value Stream Map, including determining WIP (work in progress) depicting physical movement and process flow along with information flow, and assessing when work is value-added and when it is non-value added. Value stream maps are used to identify bottlenecks and wasteful steps in a work process and then process mapping and rapid improvement events (RIEs) can be used to remove these wasteful processes and impediments to workflow. Finally you will be introduced to the principles of leveling both under elective and emergency treatment conditions. Applying these tools can dramatically improve efficiency and productivity without increasing overall manpower.
