Demand Filter

Bullant Filters - Demand Filter

The metrics used to monitor the performance of a flow line are summarised in a document that we call the Demand Filter.

Sample Demand Filter

A Demand Filter includes the following metrics;

  • Line Effectiveness (similar to Lean's Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE))
  • Drumbeat (instantaneous rate at the bottleneck - The Drum)
  • Running Efficiency
  • Financial performance measures including Octane.
  • Quality
  • Product Cycle Rates

The Demand Filter is used to determine the most important products as measured by the time required at the Drum of a production line.

Bullant Demand Filters have evolved as a result of many applications in different process industries. They are also used as foundation data for Value Stream Maps.
