Value Stream Mapping
Value stream mapping is a special type of flow chart that uses symbols known as
"the language of lean" to document, analyze and improve the flow of information or materials required to produce a product or service for a customer. Although value stream mapping is often associated with manufacturing, it is also used in logistics, supply chain, service related industries, healthcare, software development, product development, and administrative and office processes. Advanced use of value steam mapping should occur when competence, experience, and time for mapping are available and when the tool applies to the situation.
Value stream mapping employs a flow diagram documenting in high detail every step of a process. Many lean practitioners see value stream mapping as the fundamental tool to identify waste, reduce process cycle times and implement process improvement. Some organizations even treat the value stream mapping as the hallmark of their lean efforts. Learn about benefits of using value stream map.
