Lean Manufacturing One Piece Material Flow Makes Kaizen Take Root According to Topper Industrial

Topper Industrial asserts that one piece flow makes Kaizen take root by exposing hidden problems and making them more visible. Because the simplest behavior of lean culture, continuous process improvement, is a Kaizen event, one piece flow and small lot repetitive delivery allow Kaizen events to take root. Failures don’t happen over time with one piece flow. The second order is held up because of product defect discovered in the first assembly process. Corrective action is mandated before the second order commences.

Sometimes referred to as “single piece flow” or “continuous flow,” one piece flow is a key concept within the Toyota Production System. Achieving one piece flow helps manufacturers achieve true just-in-time manufacturing. When the right parts can be made available when they are needed in the quantity they are needed, it becomes evident that Kaizen events have taken root to the company culture.

Ensuring all materials are where and when needed is best achieved in a fork truck free environment. Gemba walks and routine Kaizen events continuously examine if there is a delay or less than optimal lean outcome. While lean leadership starts at the top, all stakeholders must see the material value of the effort. When everyone walks the Kaizen path the efficacy and buy-in is widely adopted, understood, and part of lean company practice.
