Why focus on continuous flow?

What is the spaghetti diagram used for?

A spaghetti diagram is a visual representation that uses continuous flow to track the path of an item as it performs through its process. Why focus on it? Well, as a process analysis tool, being able to evaluate the continuous flow of an item enables companies to identify redundancies in the work flow as well as brainstorm opportunities to expedite process flow.

As you are able to see by the above spaghetti diagram, a fork truck driver(s) with one load per route shows more red lines in the diagram at longer occurrences (no value added activity) than the one tugger driver and his multiple load per route using tugger cart delivery.

With the ability to analyze an items continuous flow, companies are able to re-think their work flow and work better and more efficient by make small changes.

Fork truck free cart delivery systems contribute a lot of value when implementing. It benefits in the reduction of inventory, improvement of material flow, reduction of line-side handling equipment and more efficient floor space usage, while improving operator ergonomics, and the most important, improving safety standards.
