Value Stream Mapping

03/22/2017 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Training Description: A value stream map is a standardized model used to layout the stream of value adding activities in a process while overlaying material flow, information flow, and non-value adding waste information to provide a qualitative picture of the actual process in a facility. This tool also maps the information flow from the customer, through the enterprise to suppliers and back to customers. It provides a common language for discussing any process. It provides a means to tie together lean concepts and techniques and a method to develop a working blueprint for implementing lean concepts on the shop floor.

Training Objective: The Objective of this training will be to map production processes and provide a roadmap for what will be needed to improve these processes. Specific kaizen activities will be identified and focused kaizen events will be undertaken as part of the next training element to address areas that have been shown to add excessive time, inventory, product travel distance and other measures that can help impact overall productivity and sales. The specific measures of success for this will be to generate a document that clearly identifies improvement opportunities and an implementation plan. These measures will be recognized and provide goals during the kaizen training that will follow.

  • How to use a standardized model to layout the stream of value adding activities in a process while overlaying material flow, information flow, and non-value adding waste information to
  • provide a qualitative picture of the actual process in our facility
