Course Description


Only a few organizations are lucky enough to exist in a production environment of stable demand and low product variety.  Most organizations exist in a production environment with a wide variety of products, variable demand, different cycle times, and shared resources.  The Mixed Model Flow Workshop is a key component of SigmaPro’s Lean Six Sigma training curriculum for industrial and manufacturing organizations.  This workshop extends the concepts of value stream mapping to show you how to apply optimize a high-mix, variable demand environment. The content provides a detailed step-by-step methodology that starts with how to analyze an existing “As Is” map for a complex production process and finishes with how to optimize, implement and sustain the “Should Be” process while fully accounting for production complexity.
