New Value Stream Mapping
Value stream mapping creates a visual representation of all product and information flows from raw material receiving to shipping finished products. By including all value added and non-value added (waste) activities in the value stream needed to produce a product, improvement opportunities are identified along with the logical sequence for implementing them. Then a future-state map is drawn to create the blueprint for Lean transformation. Applying VSM to a high-priority pilot process allows companies to demonstrate results that will assure continued interest in applying Lean concepts.
