A tool for process visualisation and lead time reduction. Value Stream Mapping (VSM) is a tool for visualising the flow of material and information within a process and quite often will be referred to as Material & Information Flow (M&I) within Toyota.
If you can imagine your business as a timeline that starts from the point when you get the order and ends at the point you collect the cash then what we are trying to do is reduce that timeline by eliminating non-value added activities within it.
During this course you will learn what "Just In Time" means within Toyota and that this does not mean no inventory.
VSM Key Study Areas
- The purpose of value stream mapping
- How to study the process and recognise all points of stagnation
- Establish targets for future state conditions
- Develop and implement an improvement action plan
