Value Stream Mapping

Our "Value Stream Mapping” workshop has been designed as a one-day programme that will transmit in a very practical way the concepts and tools that your business can use to see waste in production and business processes, and provides the foundation for the creation of plans to remove or streamline non-value-adding steps. This is achieved by analysing the current state and designing a future state for the series of events that take a product or service from its beginning through to the customer.

In Value Stream Mapping we follow a process from start to finish monitoring and measuring what happens within, and between, each process step. A flow diagram showing the process is drawn to reflect the current state of the operation. The non-value actions are identified in each step, and the process is analysed for opportunity to drastically reduce and simplify it to the fewest actions necessary.

By reducing wastefulness the redesigned process becomes more streamlined (the right things are being done) and more efficient (needing fewer resources). The reengineered process is flow charted in its future state with process steps and information flows redesigned, simplified and made less expensive.

The objective of the course is knowledge transfer; providing the client with the capability to apply the VSM process to their existing value streams. The course format is a workshop approach, based on learning by doing and will provide the organisation with their first generation Value Stream Map and the knowledge to reproduce it as part of the annual planning cycle.

Who Should Attend

LBSPartners’ Value Stream Mapping training course is designed for management, team leaders and supervisors responsible for key processes in the business. The training is applicable in all industries and for any business size.

Who is this Course For?

This is an in-house course delivered on site in your business. It is ideally suited to lean managers, continuous improvement facilitators, company executives, Six Sigma Green/Black belts and change managers. This two day VSM training course focuses generating continuous improvement activities and a management approach to ensure the formation of the right culture to bring about sustainable improvement.

On Completion of the two day programme each of the participants will be able to:

  • Understand VSM terminology, language and its links with Lean Management
  • Assess where waste (non-value added activities) can be found in a business
  • Remove all of the waste that we identified
  • Initiate incremental improvement by reducing the opportunities for error and rework
  • Create a "Future State" value stream based on customer requirements and the "pull" concept of value
  • Implement quick wins
  • Develop plans to implement the future state and benefits
  • Identify continuous improvement projects

Value Stream Mapping

Value Stream Mapping is a systems approach to Lean Manufacturing, based on looking at the complete flow of a selected control part through its sequence of operations. The purpose of a value stream map is to identify waste, particularly excess inventory, in the process and then to develop an improvement plan to reduce that waste. A complete Value Stream Mapping project consists of a Current State Map - where we are now, a Future State Map - the ideal, and an improvement plan to move from the current state towards the ideal future state. At the same time as mapping material flows, an important part of the Value Stream Mapping process is to map information flows, and we can help you select a pacemaker process and synchronise information and material flows.

Participants Will Learn To:

Plan and link Lean initiatives to avoid the pitfall of "cherry picking" lean tools in a series of haphazard kaizen events Use a "storyboard" to succinctly display and communicate the current and future state maps, key metrics, and a summary of the mapping process Create a prioritised implementation plan of which Lean tools to use and where to use them for optimal payback Properly apply such key Lean tools and techniques as takt time, buffer and safety stock calculations, continuous flow cells, operator balance charts, standard work, regulating pull systems with kanban, pitch and heijunka, the proper role for MRPII, and OEE and value added ratios.

This course will take you through a step-by-step method of value stream mapping and storyboarding. You will understand how to gather the information needed to eliminate all non-value adding waste, and how to use it to plan the implementation of your Lean activities You will create a visual Value Stream Management Map from supplier to customer through all the internal production processes for one or more product lines. You will learn how to optimize both material and information flow by actually applying Value Stream Management to eliminate the root cause of waste. Simulated practice followed by application of the tool to actual products lets you apply the knowledge and promotes immediate results during the event. This technique also teaches a satisfying team approach to continuous improvement.

Value Stream Mapping

Course Description Value Stream Mapping is a high level tool that enables a management team in a manufacturing environment to take a systems approach to implementing operational excellence and customer satisfaction. A VSM Workshop is facilitated on an annual basis during which "one year’s worth" of projects is identified to further enhance customer service and process performance.

Learning Objective:
At the end of the workshop participants will be able to:
– Understand the purpose and performance of a high level value stream map
– Have a physical detailed VSM for the product (order processing, planning, purchasing, production, quality and distribution)
– Have identified measures of customer values in key processes
– Have a list of prioritised issues and action items on which to work on during a one year period, that will deliver a more robust, lower cost and customer friendly process and have identified key performance metrics, the achievement of which will help to guarantee consistent delivery of customer value.

Value Stream Mapping (VSM)

Value Stream Mapping (VSM) is a very effective, Lean diagnostic technique. It provides a visual methodology and template for analyzing the current state of your business and helps you design the desired, future state of materials (products and services) and information flows, from their origins to their end-point, the customers.
