In virtually any value adding process, 95 to 99,5% of the time is non-value adding. It is such non-value adding time that is being identified and eliminated through the analyses in the makigami sessions.
Most process have many transfer points (one desk to the other) that can be can be eliminated. This leads to less waiting time and particularly to less errors.
Throughput time of virtually any process can dramatically be improved by using the makigami method. The improvements with makigami affect throughput time, errors, process stability, cost and more.
