Flow Simulation at Kaas Tailored

See for yourself firsthand how flow can best batch production. Through the 12 modules, this simulation, hosted by Kaas Tailored, will demonstrate flow by building miniature American football field goal posts.

Preparing for Kaas Flow Simulation Round 1

Tucker Kaas, Kaizen Consultant and GM Resident at Kaas Tailored, explains 3 different types of flow through a simulation involving field goal assembly.

Kaas Flow Simulation Round 1 - Batch

Watch the flow simulation Tucker Kaas, Kaizen Consultant and GM Resident at Kaas Tailored, led with a group of visitors to demonstrate batch production.

Review of Kaas Flow Simulation Round 1

After demonstrating batch production, Tucker Kaas, Kaizen Consultant and GM Resident at Kaas Tailored, helps the group identify the advantages and disadvantages of this type of flow.

Preparing for Kaas Flow Simulation Round 2

After analyzing the pros and cons of batch and push production, Tucker Kaas, Kaizen Consultant and GM Resident at Kaas Tailored, explains the next type of flow for this simulation, called Green and Go.

Kaas Flow Simulation Round 2 - Green Means Go

In this second simulation at Kaas Tailored, observe how the team produces pieces only when they have the green card with the “GO” signal.

Review of Kaas Flow Simulation Round 2

After experiencing the Green and Go flow, Tucker Kaas, Kaizen Consultant and GM Resident at Kaas Tailored, helps the group identify the advantages and disadvantages of this type of flow.

Preparing for Kaas Flow Simulation Round 3

The third type of flow in this series of simulations is balanced flow. Tucker Kaas, Kaizen Consultant and GM Resident at Kaas Tailored, explains what balanced flow is and how to carry it out.

Kaas Flow Simulation Round 3 - Balanced Flow

Tucker Kaas, Kaizen Consultant and GM Resident at Kaas Tailored, leads the execution of the third simulation, balanced flow.

Review of Kaas Flow Simulation Round 3

After executing the third simulation based on balanced flow, Tucker Kaas, Kaizen Consultant and GM Resident at Kaas Tailored, helps the team analyze differences, identify wastes, and explains which flow has worked best and why.

Overview of Round 4 - True Pull

Even after creating a balanced flow, the process can still be improved. Tucker Kaas, Kaizen Consultant and GM Resident at Kaas Tailored, explains what true pull means.

Facilitator Overview of the Kaas Flow Simulation

Tucker Kaas and Josh Hegvik from Kaas Tailored summarize what we experienced in the prior flow simulations, and explain the advantages and disadvantages of the different methods.
