Success with Interval Analysis

I have a major project coming up in the UK involving a complex mixed model value stream and shared resources. Aerospace value streams are characterized by high mix, low volumes and long leadtimes. In this type of environment, interval analysis is critical at your major shared resources. Without determining interval and figuring out a good system of "what to work on next", you can't reliably predict the leadtime through your factory. Duggan Inc (lean author/guru Kevin Duggan's consulting group) had this informative article on their website about a successful application of interval analysis at Sikorsky.
