Value Stream Mapping enables a company to identify and eliminate waste, thereby streamlining work processes, cutting lead times, reducing costs and increasing quality. Through Value Stream Mapping, a team of employees can map the current state from customer back to raw material including all steps. Both value-added and non-value-added steps are covered in order to develop a future state vision to act as a blueprint for Lean activities. The Future State often represents a significant change compared to the way the company currently operates. The VSM team will develop an implementation strategy to make the Future State a reality. The most urgent needs will be addressed first, and can typically be accomplished in a very short time frame with the appropriate resources applied.
