eVSM Wizards

 

Tutorials

Examples

Kanban - to calculate kanban sizing and quantities. PDF PDF
Facility Time Pro - allows direct specification by each weekday of times, shift patterns, and related costs. Summary values from the wizard can be used on production maps.  PDF PDF
Manufacturing Multi Station - calculates the properties of an equivalent machine that has the same capacity as multiple machines with differing properties. Designed to be used with the Quick Manufacturing stencil. PDF PDF
Processing Multi Station - calculates the properties of an equivalent machine that has the same capacity as multiple machines with differing properties. Designed to be used with the Quick Processing stencil. PDF PDF
EPEI - calculate min possible and actual EPEI (Every Part Every Interval) intervals for multiple products going through a single station with differing demands and lot sizes. PDF PDF
POLCA (Paired-cell Overlapping Loops of Cards with Authorization) - is a variant of Kanban, suitable for companies which produce many different and/or customized products. PDF PDF
Standard Work - allows layout of standard work with manual, machine, and walk times and creates a standard work chart. PDF PDF
Spaghetti Diagram - allows you to draw paths on a floor plan and then export a Path Report with distances to Excel. PDF PDF
A3 Report - Create A3 Reports in Visio with a starter template and a dedicated stencil of standard shapes from eVSM. PDF PDF
Event Circle - allows you to visualize all the transactions in a given pathway or process. PDF PDF
