What we do

The Flow Principle; Leveled Planning and Process Balancing

Training Summary

Flow is probably the most important process improvement principle when it comes to through-put efficiency. Flow is defined as a continuous progress of products through a process without waiting times or rework loops.

Target Audience

From first line management to board level

Main Contents

Examples of some key lessons addressed in this training are as follows:

  • What is a bottleneck?
  • Resource efficiency vs. value stream efficiency
  • Cycle-time balancing vs. operator balancing
  • The balancing board
  • The Value Stream Map
  • Spaghetti diagram analysis
  • The standard combination table


RiverRouge teaches this principle through real-life simulation sessions demonstrating the transition from interrupted processes to a flow condition.
