Value Stream Mapping

Eliminating waste by consequently optimizing the value stream

Improvement projects focus on the sustainable reduction of lead times and aim at achieving process stability. Eliminating waste is the key objective. Applying the approach of value stream mapping is one of the most powerful tools to systematically analyse and, hence, identify the various types of waste. Continuing from a detailed value stream map, the value stream is to be designed in such a way that waste is reduced to a minimum. Although value stream mapping and value stream design are well-known methodologies, they are rarely applied in an effective manner.
