16.3 – Identify the opportunities for improvement listed during the original VSM as well as during the physical deployment. Find and implement opportunities to reduce inventory quantities (or increase if needed). This is done by decreasing or increasing the replenishment cycle, the “DOH” in the inventory quantity formula. Go back to the original Material Management VSM, and revisit the “Kaizen Burst” ideas that were developed there. Consolidate all the Kaizen opportunities into a single Kaizen database.
