Is it possible for me to get the same tutor who did order#29871 to do this assignment?

Overview: Value stream mapping is a qualitative lean systems tool aimed at eliminating waste (muda) in many manufacturing processes. Value stream mapping is useful because it creates a visual map of every process involved in the flow of materials and information in a product’s value chain (worth of operations).

Prompt: Using the example of a value stream map in Table 6.1 (see attached), produce a value stream map of Harley Davidson motor cycle company. (You may focus on a specific product line or division within the company.) In similar chart form, be sure to include types of waste and how they apply to your selected company. You may use textbook information and any outside sources identified in your research so far to inform your response and complete a 3 page document.

The value stream map should outline the three parts of the value stream mapping process:

1. Evaluation: Include a current-state value stream map, as exemplified by the instructions and process steps in Chapter 6 of the course textbook. This will require an evaluation of the present processes being investigated. Be sure to include all relevant processing steps, timeline elements, and transportation methods for delivery on incoming shipment of product.

2. Projection: Include a future-state value stream map, which projects how the value stream map would lay out after improvements are made.

3. Analysis and Recommendations: Include an implementation plan, as exemplified by the instructions and process steps in Chapter 6 of the course textbook. Be sure to completely analyze the current-state value stream map, identify instances of bottlenecks and waste (muda), and clearly explain the improvements that can be made to achieve a leaner process.

Value Stream Mapping- Harley Davidson Motor Cycles
Evaluation of Cu
ent Process
The first Harley Davidson motor cycle was taken of the manufacturing line in 1909 and the
and has been reinventing itself ever since. In the late 1970s, when the company was losing all its potential customers due to strong competition arising from Japanese companies, they knew they had to change something in their company. So the manufacturing process was completely changed. They started a JIT (Just In Time)
and called MAN (materials as needed). Initially they were using the batch process to manufacture but the new process consisted of JIT, EI (Employee Involvement) and SOC (Statistical Operator Control). It was called the manufacturing triad. This process
ought in certain improvements in the reduction of setup, focus increased on process flow and preventive maintenance was started.
The diagram below shows the value stream map and process flow of the Harley Davidson manufacturing facility at York Assembly Plant.
Value mapping in the process-
· Inventory levels went down by 75%
· The number of motor cycles completed on assembly line went up to 99% from 76%
· Scrap level reduced by 68%
· Space requirements were reduced by 25%
Now we will look into the wastes table to see what are the wastes being produced in this process
