Determine at least one root cause for  each waste example and recommend at least one improvement action for  each of the root causes (all together eight root causes and eight  improvement actions)

c) For the process that you picked  earlier for value stream mapping, construct a production (layout) floor  plan (with at least five core activities) using a MS Office program.  Determine the location of equipment, personnel, inventory, etc. as well  as the flow of materials/goods with their proper names.

d) For your product, construct a JIT  production flow based on a Kanban Pull system. Label all the elements  and activities within the layout, and describe how the pull system  works.
