Lean Design Tools

Lean design tools including spaghetti diagramming, quick changeover, plant milkrun design, kanban calculation and project planning. Note that applications designated with an asterisk(*) are only available in eVSM Mix and not in eVSM Standard.

Spaghetti Diagram 

The Spaghetti diagramming application allows you to draw paths on a floor plan and then export a Path Report with distances to Excel.

Example Tutorial

Plant Milkrun* 

The Plant Mikrun application allows design of material delivery routes and replenishment periods within a plant via overlay sketching on floor plan with calculation of travel times, load times, and unload times. Allows usage of specific transport types and one or more standardized containers per milkrun.

Example Video

Changeover* 

The Changeover application allows analysis of converting a line or machine from running one product to another with calculation of walk times, work times, and separation of internal and external work components. Also computes cost of product capacity lost during changeover. Supports changeover work content from multiple staff. Generates C/O work chart with timings.

Example Tutorial

Kanban 

Calculates Kanban sizing and quantities for a simple Kanban loop and using safety factors against demand variation and supply issues.

Example Tutorial

Project Planning 

The Project application allows visual project planning and scheduling with start/end constraints and associated resource usage and costs. Automatically generates a Gantt chart and allows highlighting of the critical path.

eLearning Course

Standard Work 

Allows layout of standard work with manual, machine and walk times and creates a standard work chart.

Example Tutorial

Layout Design*

The Layout Application supports visual planning of area layout with qualitative and quantitative consideration of material flows, transport mechanisms, service requirements and auxiliary conditions. It is a very visual approach and loosely based on the layout planning methodologies developed by Muther, Apple, and others.

Tutorial

A3 Report 

The A3 application creates A3 Reports in Visio with a starter template and a dedicated stencil of standard shapes from eVSM.
