Construct A Value Stream Map (VSM) For The New Product Developed Under Section A) And B) Using A MS Office Program. It Should Have A Supplier At The One End And A Customer At The Other End, An Information Flow With Minimum One Core Activity
a) Construct a value stream map (VSM) for the new product developed under section a) and b) using a MS Office program. It should have a supplier at the one end and a customer at the other end, an information flow with minimum one core activity, a material flow with at least five core activities, at least three inventory locations. You should also enter the value added and non-value added times for all core activities and inventories, and determine the ratio of value added and non-value added times
b) As part of the VSM that you created earlier, pick at least four different waste forms and identify at least two examples for each of the four waste forms (all together eight examples)
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.
