Value Stream Mapping

Value Stream Mapping is the tool used to understand, analyse and improve a value stream.

At the heart of Lean thinking is the focus on creating value for the customer and eliminating waste. The sequence of activity within an organisation that creates customer value is called the value stream.

Value Stream Mapping (VSM) is a technique that can be employed to not only provide a visual representation of a procedure, but also used to analyse the flow of material and information required to bring a product or service to a customer. VSM has the potential to identify significant savings in the way in which the process is organised and performed. 

The focus of this 1-day Lean Training course is to provide delegates with the practical skills to use value stream mapping in a service or manufacturing organisation.

Our experienced and knowledgeable staff have frequently been requested to carry out Value Stream Mapping exercises, which have resulted in significant saving for the organisations involved. If required BTA can incoporate a post course assignment approach following this training when we will facilitate, coach and support the team in the application of their newly developed skills.
