TransaXional® – Business Process Classes

The Shainin business process problem solving methodology has been successfully applied across a wide range of industries since 2003. Here is a sample of the functional areas in which it has been applied:

Product Development Quoting / Estimating
System Validation Finance
Logistics Accounting
Production Material Control Purchasing
Information Technology Personnel
SAP Implementation Service Operations
Quality Systems Prototype Operations
Engineering Systems Manufacturing Operations

Here is a short list of sample projects which we have applied the Shainin TransaXional® process:

  • Development of standard work for Quality System requirements
  • Reduction in inventory discrepancies
  • Reduction in Spam and Junk e-mails not flagged
  • Freight/shipping cost optimization
  • Streamlining HR systems
  • Warranty NTF reduction
  • Streamline new employee onboarding process
  • Optimize utilization of heavy equipment
  • Improve accuracy and timing of compliance reporting
  • Reduction in hospital wait times
  • Prototype part lead time reduction

TransaXional® Problem Solving: Apprentice

Students learn strategies and techniques for finding the hidden causes that are keeping their business processes from performing properly. Ideal projects for this level are processes involving a: logistics, material control, accounting, purchasing, manufacturing operations, and human resources. Students will learn to create functions models that will allow them to talk to the occurrences. From there students will understand and rank failures in the business process to identify and implement corrective actions. Finally, students learn to document savings and leverage the profound knowledge gained by revealing unknown failures in complex business processes.

Course Objectives:

  • Learn TransaXional® problem solving principles and concepts.
  • Understand the DETAIL problem solving process.
  • Define project scope using a Problem Definition Tree.
  • Develop Function Models.
  • Talk to the Occurrences.
  • Assign priority to critical functions.
  • Identify and define focused activities to drive improvement.
  • Leverage the results across the organization.

Prerequisites: None

This class is offered as either a client sponsored class or a Shainin sponsored class. Client sponsored classes, held at the client site, provide an opportunity for discussions focused on the client’s products and technologies. Shainin sponsored classes, held at a central location, provide an opportunity to network and compare notes with problem solvers from other industries.

The following are scheduled Shainin sponsored classes:

TransaXional® Problem Solving: Journeyman

Students review problem definition trees, RPN pareto, functional models, analysis cycles, and responsibility matrices to ensure their understanding and efficient utilization of the DETAIL framework. With this baseline solidified, the students will then learn to use redundancy detection to analyze and improve a function model and will also learn to calculate and comprehend functional complexity scores. This will allow students to optimize function models, use functional synthesis to find missing functions, and demonstrate function model improvement. The students will also learn how to create new processes using a function-based approach as well as to identify high-risk functions with a secondary RPN pareto when designing a new process when no occurrence data exists. Lastly, the students will review Lean and master the interaction between TransaXional and Lean tools to provide superior process optimization.

Course Objectives:

  • Review TransaXional® problem solving principles and concepts.
  • Utilize functional complexity scores, functional risk priority number (RPN), and redundancy detection.
  • Understand and perform advanced analyses of function models.
  • Explore how TransaXional and Lean interface and work together.
  • Study Function Vs Time domains and chain of events.
  • Design new processes using a function-based approach.
  • Link functions to processes.
  • Learn how to communicate project strategy and status to team members and management.
