Value Stream Mapping Event

Value Stream Mapping is a planning tool to help companies focus on when and where they should apply Lean concepts to get the most impact. The VSM process consists of identifying value streams/product groups in the organization, mapping a current state of material and information flow and assessing the inherent wastes and designing a future state of how the value stream is desired to perform. The result is an implementation plan that clearly prioritizes when and where to focus improvements and how each improvement will help achieve the future state. After the event, you will have a current-state map, future-state map and an implementation plan of your own value stream.
