Fishbone Diagrams for Problem Solving
Anne uses fishbone diagrams to identify problems and their causes in quality improvement plans. This involves brainstorming sessions with stakeholders to determine where there is room for improvement. The fishbone diagram helps to identify root problems, rather than just symptoms. This method is effective for collaborative exercises and can help to identify alternative causes that provide innovation to fault analysis.
Value Stream Mapping for Material Flow
Companies must continuously improve to stay competitive. That's why Anne uses value stream mapping to reduce waste, following the lean methodology. The waste includes unnecessary printing, overproduction, movement of products, and extra processing. Value stream mapping helps create a plan to use resources efficiently so that materials and time are not wasted. It is a powerful tool for planning and optimizing results.

Gantt charts are a tool to assign responsibility for tasks to team members and help to audit their performance. The function allows the production staff to plan, control, and optimize their production plan while taking into account resources and workforce. Anne found that using Gantt charts helps her team use resources efficiently, minimize work in progress, and optimize production order throughput times.
