Value Stream Mapping Software - Create a Value Stream Map Rapidly
Edraw value stream mapping software is a mechanism to improve cycle times and productivity by visually separating value-adding from non-value-adding activities.
Create a Value Stream Map
Value stream maps are a popular way to find waste in a
company's processes - steps that do not add value to the end product.

The following value stream mapping shapes include the basic
process, supplier, control, shipment, push, information and data table shapes.
The value-added flowchart is a mechanism to improve cycle times and
productivity by visually separating value-adding from non-value-adding
activities. The process is very straightforward, as outlined below:
List all of the steps in a
process from beginning to end.
Create a diagram with a box for
every step, in sequence.
Calculate the time currently
required to complete each step of the process, and add that time to the box.
Add the time in each box to yield
the Total Cycle Time.
Identify those steps that do not
add value to the process. Non-value-added operations include: inspection,
test, rework, set-up, inventory buffers, product movement other than
customer delivery - any activity that does not improve the form, fit, or
function of the product on the first passes through the process.
Move the boxes representing
non-value-added processes to the right of the value-adding steps.
Add the time in each of the
non-value-added processes to yield the Non-Value-Added Cycle Time. This is
the waste that could be eliminated if only value-added steps were performed.
Add the time in each of the
value-added process to yield the Value-Added Cycle Time.
Calculate the percentage of the
Total Cycle Time that is a function of Non-Value-Added operations. You may
wish to construct a pie chart to communicate the analysis.
Identify the target process
configuration using benchmarking and best-in-class analysis.
Diagram the target process and
determine the Total Target Cycle Time.
Analyze the Non-Value-Added steps
to find out actions to reduce or eliminate these operations.
Analyze the Value-Added steps to
identify improvement opportunities and implement actions to reduce the cycle
Diagram the improved process,
compare with the target process, and identify gaps for further improvement
actions, in an on-going cycle until the target is achieved.
