Value Stream Mapping
Value stream mapping (VSM) creates a visual representation of all product and information flows from raw material to shipping. By including all value adding and non-value adding (waste) activities in the value stream needed to produce the product, the current-state map identifies improvement opportunities and the logical sequence for implementing them. The future-state map is then drawn to create the blueprint for lean transformation. By incorporating the improvements to be implemented, the future-state map shows what the future process could and should resemble. By applying VSM to a high-priority pilot process, companies can demonstrate results that will assure continued interest in applying lean concepts.
