Waste in Value Streams Caused by Information Flow: An Analysis of Information Flow Barriers and Possible Solutions

Waste in Value Streams Caused by Information Flow: An Analysis of Information Flow Barriers and Possible Solutions.

Abstract

This paper focuses on causes in information logistics that hinder an efficient and waste free information flow. Therefore, waste, problems and KAIZENs identified in 14 value stream analyses 4.0 from different industry applications are investigated by a root cause analysis. These analyzed problems are clustered based on the phase in the information flow where they occur and the kind of waste they lead to. For every obtained cluster a generalized flow barrier is defined. The results can be used to support the selection of digital technologies and help to design efficient information flows in the production context.
