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.
