Leveling flows means to, through planning, find ways to level the load of resources and thus create conditions for efficient operations. It is not always possible to fully level flows. However, there are usually several steps that can be taken to achieve better leveling.
Efforts to level flows normally start with identifying the factors that affect the situation, and through analysis shaping activities to reduce volatility. An action plan is then created which forms the basis for the implementation of agreed activities.
Leveling flows has a significant impact on the productivity of a business. By creating the conditions for a higher utilization of resources and a better working situation for employees, huge profits can be generated.
