One of the blueprints of lean transformations, a value-stream map (VSM) is a paper-and-pencil representation of every process in the material and information flow along with key performance metrics and other data. It differs significantly from tools such as process mapping or layout diagrams because it includes information flow as well as material flow.
Among other benefits, VSMs can help you to:
Improve the overall flow of value to the customer and deliver the biggest benefits
Identify and eliminate process and system waste
Avoid the common mistake of “cherry-picking” individual lean techniques, which creates isolated islands of improvement and limited benefits
Reveal where lean techniques, such as kaizen events, could be utilized for maximum effects
The mapping process results in a detailed overview of the production or the service delivery flow and focuses attention on Lean concepts and application of Lean methods enabling targeted Kaizen activities.
To understand the importance of VSM in improving business performance
To learn VSM symbols and mapping current and future state
To understand concept of organisational value and waste
This workshop will sharpen your “eyes for waste” and “eyes for flow.” Using a manufacturing case study you’ll learn how to identify a product family, how to see the entire value stream for a particular product family, how to map the value stream to identify and eliminate waste, what makes a value stream lean, and how to develop a plan to achieve results.
