III      Why CRUDDR? Because too many folks default to the most expensive and delayed solutions to Value-Streams.  CRUDDR prioritizes actions

IV      What is CRUDDR - Acronym to help prioritize the types of actions to look for to improve value Streams. Stands for Cut, Repair, Unchain, Distribute, Duplicate, Robotize

a.       C - Cut non-value added work.  Just stop doing it.  This is free

b.      R - Repair broken steps. This means anything creating defects, rework or other yield related issues

c.       U - Unchain BVA or NNVA steps.  Remove them from the critical path. Make them parallel. These are internal processes and should not add to the overall lead time the customer experiences

d.      D - Distribute non-level workload.  Break up the value-added work and redistribute through-out the value stream  (a.k.a. heijunka)

e.       D - Duplicate constrained resources.  People or equipment that are at the remaining time constraints or bottlenecks

f.       R - Robotize repetitive/tedious value-added tasks . (finally what everyone wanted- automation; but more accurately autonomation). This is last because no money or time should be spent automating non-value added work.  Automation as a rule should be limited to those areas that are hazardous or tedious to the point they cause errors and/or injury.  (a.k.a. jidoka)
