Value Stream Mapping

Step 2 - Locate and eliminate the hidden waste in your processes!

Course Summary

 What is Value Stream Mapping?
Value Stream Mapping (VSM) is a great tool to help define if a  business is meeting customer demand. It aligns with Strategy Deployment  as a method for highlighting key area that need improving. VSM allows a  team to get a 30,000 feet view of a business process. It is easier from  this perspective to identify and prioritize what needs to be improved to  meet the customers needs on-time, every-time.

Advantages of Value Stream Mapping
Value Stream Mapping can be completed without interference in the physical work area.  The activities only require a team to observe the activities and  document them. The design and development of the Value Stream Map is  completed on a whiteboard or paper back in the team's meeting room. This is what makes  Value Stream Mapping a powerful tool to have in any lean transformation toolbox.

Value Stream Mapping Steps
There are four steps to a Value Stream Mapping exercise:
    1. Data collection
    2. Draw a current state map
    3. Draw a future state map
    4. Develop an implementation plan
