Value Stream Mapping & Improvement
We facilitate our clients to eliminate waste and bottlenecks to improve process flow using value stream mapping technique and tools.
What is Value Stream Mapping?
Value stream mapping is a Lean technique used to analyze and design the flow of materials and information required to bring a product or service to a consumer.
Understanding the complete value chain of a product or service is a fundamental part of a Lean enterprise and the first step in beginning a Lean implementation program.
Value Stream Mapping allows organizations to understand where their resources are tied up in attempting to deliver a product or service to their customers. After analyzing and identifying where the waste are, you can then develop and implement future state maps to improve on their key performance indicators.
The value stream mapping technique can be applied to both manufacturing and service organizations.
