Continuous Flow

Continuous Flow

After identifying the value stream for a product, the focus is on avoiding batch and queue between different steps in the process flow.

You must ensure that the next downstream operation has:

  • only what is needed

  • just when it is needed

  • in the exact amount needed

Enabling flow without interruption, detours, back-flows, waiting and scrap presents a constant challenge.

General, the batch size should be reduced to the smallest possible size.

The end target is to enable single piece flow, meaning producing only one product at a time.
