16.45-17.30 Whisky, Sushi, Systems and Flow – Paulo Caroli (Industry & Practice, 45 minutes)

Abstract: Come participate in a conversation that challenges you to think about everyday implicit systems and flow parameters. Let’s talk about the following: my whiskey bar, my plane boarding skills, the traffic jam on a weekend beach trip, and my frustration while waiting for a temaki on a Japanese restaurant. These examples will guide our conversation about flow parameters, systems thinking, theory of constraint and queues.

Learning outcome:
– Great examples to be used when explaining flow and systems
– Understand flow parameters
– Two simple ways to control lead and cycle time
– How to use the lead time for planning
– The correlation between limiting WIP and lead time reduction.
– A simple life example of Systems Thinking
– An understanding on queues, wait time and class of service
