The Lean Desktop Application Assessment allows an individual or group to evaluate current information and data flow relative to Lean concepts and tools. The Assessment is a customizable Microsoft Excel spreadsheet that will serve as a baseline as improvements are made over time,
The Lean Desktop Application Assessment should take 5 – 10 minutes for an individual to complete and 30 – 45 minutes for a work group to complete (fill out, not create). Subsequent analysis for the work group may require an additional 1 – 2 hours to plan their first Lean Desktop project from the results of the assessment. The Assessment has 10 main categories that are each linked to an Instruction Sheet that details that particular category as well as to the Overview Sheet (Radar Chart). The score will assist you into allocating the appropriate resources in your Lean Desktop project. The Assessment has 10 main categories of 5S, Quality, Document Management, Visual Controls, Standard Work, Continuous Flow, Email, Leveling, Continuous Improvement, and Digital Waste Training, as well as 34 sub-categories.
