This one hour online course provides a basic overview for Creating Flow. Creating continuous flow should be a fundamental objective of any lean program. Continuous flow is defined as producing and moving one item at a time (or a small and consistent batch of items) through a series of processing steps as continuously as possible, with each step making just what is requested by the next step. The objective of flow is to drastically reduce throughput time (or lead-time) and human effort by eliminating waste in the process.
The Creating Flow training package is another element of the Lean Overview Series. This series provides an overview of lean tools and techniques for Engineers, Architects and Land Surveyors to help them participate more effectively in lean enterprise activities.
Each element of the Lean Overview Series provides a basic understanding of a lean tool or technique to help students develop a working knowledge of the concept and its purpose in a lean enterprise journey. The series starts with foundational elements and progresses to intermediate and advanced lean concepts. Each topic also provides references for additional study should the student be interested. Figure 1 illustrates the Lean Overview Series.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
