Your Questions About Kaizen

Joseph asks…

Measuring Effectiveness?

How to measure effectiveness of kaizen event in improving productivity?

John answers:

The most obvious answer I guess would be to obtain a production rate from before the event. I’d also make sure the data collection time span was long enough to smooth any anomalies. Collect data for a several week period, then reduce the data to units per day or units per hour or some unit that makes sense to what you are doing or producing.

Then do the same exercise immediately following the event. Then repeat the measurement exercise a third time at some time frame later. This last measurement would identify if the changes produced continuing savings or if they were only short lived.

The time periods may need to be adjusted depending on what your particular product or process is, but the general measurement technique would be the same.
