Explaining Single Piece Flow

Try this next time you try to explain flow. 

A system with single piece flow is like a domino chain.

Think about it.
  • The entire system is stable when not acted upon
  • A single event provides the stimulus to start the flow
  • After that event, the flow is predictable by step and time
One stimulus brings about predictable results. And this applies to physical flow as well as information flow.
