Value stream mapping is a lean manufacturing technique used to analyze and design the flow of materials and information required to bring a product or service to a consumer. At Toyota, where the technique originated, it is known as "material and information flow mapping”. It can be applied to nearly any value chain.
“Whenever there is a product for a customer, there is a value stream. The challenge lies in seeing it.”
It uncovers the secrets of “flow” through the use of objective data. Teaches the skill of developing a current state map and helps participants to analyze and detect roadblocks to flow. Teaches the skill of determining an effective future state for the organization. Prepares the participants to develop the needed action plan to achieve the future state.
