What is Value Stream Mapping?
You begin the journey with the current state map–it shows you where you are. Then, you plan your Lean journey with a future state map–it show you where you’re going and how you’re going to get there. Based on your Value Stream Map, you can streamline work processes, thereby cutting lead times and reducing operating costs.
Benefits of Value Stream Mapping
An industrial machinery and equipment company used Value Stream Mapping to plan their Lean transformation. Their Lean initiative so far has managed to reduce operating overhead costs 25%, increase throughput 50%, and save a projected $32,000 in paperwork each year–and much, much more.
A fabricated metals products company implemented Lean and Value Stream Mapping and was quickly able to identify and eliminate wastes that have already reduced scheduling, purchasing, and supervisory time. They expect even more results as they implement Lean company-wide.
LE202 – One-Day Workshop: Value Stream Mapping
During this workshop you use the powerful Value Stream Mapping (VSM) tool to create a current state map for Acme Stamping, a real-world firm featured in a detailed case study. Use the VSM icons and learn the common language of Lean as you draw your current state map for Acme. Next, you analyze Acme’s current state, find the non-value added activities, and then draw a future state map for Acme that eliminates those activities. You also develop a plan for attacking those non-value added activities.
