Abstract
The introduced methodical approach connects value stream mapping (VSM) and methods-time measurement (MTM) and offers new distinct advantages to reducing lead time and increasing productivity based on lean principles and standardised processes. The mutually aligned design and improvement of assembly and (production) logistic processes take workplaces, their surroundings and the supply areas as well as the overall value chain into account. The principle, benefits and the procedure of application are described in the paper. A practical example highlights the redesign of assembly workplaces and the redesign of (production) logistic processes to reduce inventory/lead time.
