Value Stream Mapping
All products, whether they be tangible goods – or services- or information, have Inputs, a Transformational Process, and Outputs. Along the Transformational Process are “value added” and “non-value” added activities. The value stream consists of all the activities required to generate a product or service from start to finish.
In this workshop, we will learn to map the value stream and use the tool to create improvements, reduce inefficiencies, and reduce the cost of the value stream. Often this is referred to as reducing wastes.
Process Mapping is a paper and pencil tool that helps you to see and understand the flow of material and information as a product or service makes its way through the value stream. Participants will learn the techniques associated with developing graphical value stream maps (current and future state).
