Kaizen workshop

A common example is the creation of a continuous flow cell in one week. In this process, a new cell is analyzed, implemented, tested and standardized by a kaizen team that includes experts from staff and consultants as well as operators and line managers. Participants are first introduced to the principles of continuous flow and then go on the gemba to observe the real situation and design the cell. Then the machines are moved and the new cell is tested. After improvements are made, the process is standardized and the kaizen team reports to senior management.
