Kurzbeschreibung (Abstract)

The prior quantification and validation of future state maps in lean production and optimization projects mostly is not taken into consideration in the traditional value stream mapping approaches. Furthermore the implementation of future states is based upon the trial and error principle. The effects of proactively changing production systems often are unknown and could underlie vast variations due to the planned outcome. So for many managers hard facts are missing and the uncertainties included in such a value stream optimization project are very high. This prevents a necessary system change accompanied by the adoption of lean methods. Thus in this paper a comprehensive value stream optimization approach is presented which primarily focuses upon chances for prior static and dynamic future state map quantification. Under consideration of parameter variability a downstream multidimensional assessment of possible design alternatives is proposed using a fuzzy decision making method to facilitate transparency in the selection of the most adequate future state map. The method described in this paper will be discussed at an industrial case study.
