Class #624 Value Stream Mapping
This class is designed for managers, supervisors, and leads who want to improve the efficiency of their operations. By learning how to create Value Stream Maps, you will be able to, in clear visual form, record specifics about an operation. By gaining the skill of Value Stream Mapping, you will then be able to identify wastes in the system, and create an optimal future Value Stream Map with streamlined changes. Implementation of changes based on accurate Value Stream Mapping and effective waste management can double productivity in a very short time. During this 1-day workshop participants will learn how to:
create Value Stream Mapping (VSM) symbols/icons and tools
draw Current Value Stream Maps to include flow of resources, material, and information
analyze Value Stream Maps with Lean principles
use Lean methodology to detect Value and Waste
