Selecting Value Streams/Product families for
Improvement
2
There are two reliable methods you can employ to help you
decide which value stream(s)/product family for improvement .
Product -quantity(PQ) Analysis
Product-routing (PR) analysis
PQ Analysis
PQ Analysis Steps


3
1) Obtain three to six months worth of data on production
output

2) Enter your products by quantity (from greatest to least) on
a PQ analysis

3) Create a Pareto chart using the data from the PQ analysis
sheet

4) Analyze the product mix

High-volume, low-variety production :
20 % 0f product types account for about 80 percent of total quantity
Here we have a high-volume ,low-variety product mix on which we should focus
value stream efforts.ie the targeted value stream would be the process or
processes that make products W and R
PR Analysis
PR Analysis Steps

6
1) Start by showing the process sequence-the sequence of
operations


2) Next group together the products that have similar process
routes



3) Analyze the mix of process routes

Products with same process route(ie value stream) Total volume required
W & I 23,600
Y & J 12,100
D,G& L 5,900
Among three value streams considered D,G and L which represent
lowest-volume product mix. So we must focus on improving value
stream dedicated to producing D,G & L .
