The Milrose Notes lean insert set includes three foundational lean tools - Process Flow / Value Stream Mapping, Standard Worksheet, and A3. Leverage the inserts to identify waste, streamline process flows, and drive continuous improvement / productivity.


Process flow / value stream mapping


Process flow / value stream mapping is a foundational element of the lean methodology to identify and reduce / remove waste. The process flow / value stream mapping insert allows you to create a detailed visualization of all important work steps. Each step can then be evaluated if it is adding or not adding value from the customer standpoint (can be internal or external). Removal of non-value added tasks results in improved productivity. The insert can be used for a simple process flow to a complex value stream map (allows for the advanced use of diagram tools and waste calculation).


Standard Worksheet


The standard worksheet provides a graphical view of the process flow, steps required, and cycle time.




A3 is a simple one-page communication and problem solving tool - forces users to populate key information in an accurate and concise manner. A3 can be used at all levels in the organization from strategy to operations connecting all levels on management from top to bottom. A3 is a foundational element to strategy deployment.


MN Tip: Use the PDSA (Plan-Do-Study-Act) Insert (available as a free download) in conjunction with the lean inserts. The insert is a useful tool for documenting a test of change to streamline process flow / eliminate waste and determining what modifications should be made to the test.
