Value Stream Mapping VSM Training
Learn how to identify non-value adding activities and waste in your organization through our Value Stream Mapping training. Value Stream Mapping is a Lean tool within the Lean Toolbox. Check out our VSM training to learn how value stream maps can be used for identifying and prioritizing continuous process improvement projects that will bring tremendous benefits to your organization.
Value Stream Mapping is a powerful visualization tool to see and understand the flow of material and information as a product or service makes its way through the value stream, and to identify the non-value adding activities and waste present within the organisation. The mapping process results in a detailed overview of the production or service delivery flow and focuses attention on Lean concepts and the application of Lean methods enabling targeted Kaizen activities.
Participants will learn how to map the current state of a product or process, analyse the flow of the product or process to identify where improvements can be made, and then map a future state based on using Lean processes to eliminate waste. This course will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to undertake value stream mapping to eliminate waste in their organisation’s processes and to use value stream maps as a basis for identifying and prioritizing future Lean improvement projects that will bring real benefits to the process flow.
