Value stream mapping is one of the key tools in the Lean toolkit, deriving its origins from the Toyota Production System. It is an essential management tool for analyzing the current state of an organization’s processes that focuses on the flow of both materials and information within the company. A value stream map is a visual tool that shows all critical steps in a particular process and easily quantifies time and volume as well as delays between process steps.
The purpose of value stream mapping is to define value from the Customer’s perspective, identify and eliminate or reduce wastes within the value stream, thereby increasing process efficiency. Based on these findings, improvements can easily be implemented to achieve a “pull” in the process, reduce waiting time and inventory.
