1 Flowchart Improvement Process Casey Marquez OPS 571 August 14 2017 Rodney Greene 2 Flowchart Improvement Process This will be an executive summary that will review a process flow chart which will include the labeled columns as well as the flow. A flow chart is a tool used by management that identifies the system process in production or service. The flow chart has a vital role in identifying critical points as well as helps improve on those points. The objective of this is to enhance the efficiency of the process to help with production. Lean improvement is a tool that assist in improvement and has multiple steps to pinpoint where intervention can take place in the process. The first step is to identify the customers and determine the level of satisfaction. A survey or review can be used to gather the information to gage the satisfaction. The second step is to reduce waste with better information, schedules, or change of layout. Third eliminate any repetitive processes to reduce amount of waste in the process. The fourth step is to map out the process and determine more activities that should be added. These can be determined to value-added or non-value added. The fifth step is to identify if projects in the processes that cause bottleneck and variability. The six step is to identify opportunities that will boost process performance and emphasize cross-training. To improve and provide a high-level scoping of the process, you must understand the process. The process between the suppliers, inputs, process, and the output of the customer is the information that will be evaluated to provide the high-level scoping. The process has many unnecessary things that will be reduced to improve the process. This helps by reducing waste, time and the cost of operation. Reduced time will improve the users wait time which lead to better satisfaction. This is known by sampling from customers, who all would like time reduced because how important time is. 3 Mapping so the process unveils a lot of duplicates roles. An example would be that there is a lot of time checking in the initial columns. Some of the columns have been eliminated to save on labor and time. This will lead to saving on cost by eliminating waste. Also, it will add to customer satisfaction. Next the bottle neck process will be determining at the entering payroll data. The bottleneck column is the component that can hinder the performance of the system. The main effort should be put in place to improve this component by shifting employees from sectors that are not as busy to this one. In addition of tasks at this stage will help in concentrating related tasks in the4 same column, reducing the waste and enhancing the movement. The Kaizen institute has a 5-step process that can help with the flow chart movement process. The first step is to sort and get rid of unnecessary tasks. Second you need to Set-in-order the tasks that will be prioritized in a certain order. Next shine and ensure the equipment is clean and standardize by stabling guidelines. Last you must sustain and audit the system to ensure compliance. For example, in payroll it is processed and presented for print in bulk which means only a few personnel are needed in printing. In conclusion, a process flow chart represents tasks and how they should be accomplished in a system process. Process improvement tools are aimed at saving on time, labor, and cost by increasing efficiency. Understanding this is needed for effective management.
