What is Glenday Sieve (GS)? definition and meaning –
I’ve carried out an initial analysis of our own sieeve and the results I got were almost identical to the examples in the book as the author predicted. There are some impressive ideas and case studies in the book but further research would lead me to believe it is still quite new in the sense that it is not a mainstream lean tool like Kanban, VSM etc.
I’d love to hear from anyone who has successfully or unsuccessfully used this tool.
The difficulty that I have had with his method is the use of just one criterion, in this case production volume, regardless of profitability, demand variability one time order quantity is large compared to another product that is ordered 50 times but the final quantity is the same as the one-time ordermanufacturing routing, etc.
His method is a good fit for repetitive assembly but not recommended for non-repetitive high-mix manufacturing. How then do you sequence the products in order of decreasing “merit” based on both volume and sales?

Now you need to trade-off volume against sales, right? And how would his method create a mixed model manufacturing cell or line for high-volume high-value products versus low-volume-high value products sifve similar, maybe identical, routings?
If you are interested in the “JobshopLean Seive”: Hi Simon, As you can see it works! But it’s only a way of choosing the products you’re gona take for your first lean model line. So go on with next step: Thanks for your replies, It was interesting that the results were the “same as the book” when sorted by volume but VERY different when sorted by value.
Both sets of results needed to be tweaked significantly to get a viable Green Stream and to be honest, there actually weren’t any major surprises as promised in the book.
An interesting tool to focus on the initial lean sievw line as Emmanuel described, but certainly not a panacea. I could also envision doing it by quarter because our business is very seasonal.
The answers can be different for sure. To me the opportunity is to use the rationale that “makes the most sense” to solve the problem you are targeting and start trying to level the production based on the sieve.
