To be able to understand current process status and to continuously progress, it is important to know in depth the processes and the objects directly connected to them.
From the Analysis Tab, you can generate Process Analysis Workbooks for each object’s parent in EPC. This Workbook in an Excel sheet that regroups the information added in the Analysis Tab, according to the chosen path (or paths): Critical and High Risk.
This tab allows process owners, or users responsible for specific objects within EPC, to add real-time data to the objects and facilitates process analysis overall.
Within this tab, many elements can be edited, that will be taken into consideration in the Workbooks:
1. The path(s) on which the object is
2. The value type and the Waste type associated to the object
3. The average number of operators and of executions needed for the object
4. Average times for specific situations
With all of this information added to objects, the Process Analysis Workbook corresponding to the parent will integrate all the values of all objects and generate tables and charts with these values.
For example, by selecting the following values for a task, the workbook will integrate them:
To generate the Workbook, you need to:
1. Click on the icon
2. Click on the downloaded Excel sheet
3. Click on “Enable Editing” when the Excel opens
The values will be associated in the table of the chosen path(s). In this case, the values are associated to the Critical Path, and the Total Average Lead Time corresponds to the sum of all times that were added in the Analysis Tab, in this case: 10h + 30 mins + 1h =11h 30mins.
The same value is also displayed in the Total Average Non-Value Added Time section, since we previously selected “Non-Value Added” or “NVA” for the Value Type of the object. So all times related to the object are necessarily NVA.
