- Is a response plan in place for when the input, process, or output measures indicate an ‘out-of-control’ condition?
- Can we add value to the current Design for lean manufacturing decision-making process (largely qualitative) by incorporating uncertainty modeling (more quantitative)?
- How does the solution remove the key sources of issues discovered in the analyze phase?
- What is an unallowable cost?
- How do you measure success?
- Is data collected and displayed to better understand customer(s) critical needs and requirements.
- Are there any disadvantages to implementing Design for lean manufacturing? There might be some that are less obvious?
- How will input, process, and output variables be checked to detect for sub-optimal conditions?
- Has the Design for lean manufacturing work been fairly and/or equitably divided and delegated among team members who are qualified and capable to perform the work? Has everyone contributed?
Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any Design for lean manufacturing project with this in-depth Design for lean manufacturing Toolkit.
In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:
- Diagnose Design for lean manufacturing projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
- Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
- Integrate recent advances in Design for lean manufacturing and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines
Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.
Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, ‘What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?’
This Toolkit empowers people to do just that – whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc… – they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Design for lean manufacturing investments work better.
This Design for lean manufacturing All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person:
