Value Stream Mapping - Value Stream Mapping is commonly used in Lean environments to identify opportunities for improvement in lead time. Although Value Stream Mapping is often associated with manufacturing, it is also used in logistics, supply chain, service related industries, healthcare, software development, and product development.

Standardized Work – Each step in the process should be defined and must be performed repeatedly in the same manner. Variations in the process will create quality problems requiring costly rework or scrap. Standard Work will define the most efficient methods to produce product using available equipment, people, and material. The Standard Work depicts the key process points, operator procedures, production sequence, safety issues, and quality checks.

Line Rebalancing – Line Balancing is an approach to balance the work between individual stations to ensure there is no lost time waiting for a prior station. Often paired with Simulation, Tactical combines this approach with continuous monitoring in a closed loop to adjust or revise work instructions and workload in a particular area to optimize production.

Simulation – In any production environment, discrete event simulation is a powerful tool for the analysis, planning, and operating of a manufacturing facility. Operations managers can use simulation to improve their production systems by eliminating bottlenecks, reducing cycle time and cost, and increasing capacity utilization.
