Abstract

Lead time is a time gap between initiation and completion of the processes or product. The lead time directly affects productivity. Short lead time results in higher output thus add more value in a given period. Value stream map is an effective tool to describe the overall process from order to delivery. In this study, there is lead time reduction by generation current state and future state for a process using various techniques. Thus, the main aim of this work to enhance production by reduction of lead time. Finally, gain in production, reduction in lead time, and reduction in inventory between the stations are also reported.
