Harnessing Process Modeling for Lean TransformationsMay 15, 2024 3:00 PM UTC

Medtronic, a leading medical device manufacturer, has consistently demonstrated remarkable progress in implementing process improvements. These wins come in a space where the "test and learn" ethos of process excellence clashes with notoriously stringent regulations on medical devices.

They noticed that data from their value stream map of the production line weren't offering them the visibility they needed into the variation holding the line back. Staple Lean metrics like average cycle time and takt time failed to reveal any significant discoveries, and variation, the real source of production bottlenecks, was lurking. They needed to take a proactive approach and see solid evidence to support process changes before approval and implementation, so they turned to Process Playground.

Join us for an engaging webinar as we explore how Medtronic leverages MoreSteam's process modeling tool, Process Playground, to drive lean transformations on its production lines. Discover how their approach to process improvement has enabled them to enhance product quality, labor efficiency, and lead time in the production of critical medical devices.
