BATCHIN

Why Something So Wrong
Can Seem So Right

Why do so many of us have a difficult time understanding why Batch Processing is bad and single piece flow is better? Because we batch so much in our own personal lives!

This energetic and fun training tape will demonstrate many wasteful batch processing activities in our own home and personal lives, why they are so prevalent, and why we resist single piece flow or smaller batches. It then challenges us to eliminate waste in our own personal lives and bring that spirit to the work environment.

Mike Micklewright shows how to improve one in-home process – the laundry process – by demonstrating a Current State Map, a Future State Map, 5S-ing the closet, and a variety of other kaizen events to dramatically decrease the Lead Time and Cycle Time.
