value stream


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 organization.

Course Objective

After going through Value Stream Mapping training participants will understand and learn about:

  • Understand the importance of focusing on the value stream.
  • Understand the concept of organizational value and waste.
  • Understand the importance of value stream mapping in improving business performance.
  • Learn structured methods for conducting value stream mapping including Current and Future State mapping.
  • Learn how to achieve the Future State with the Value Stream Plan.

Who Should Attend :

Lean Managers                Process Engineer

Project Managers            Quality Managers

Vendor Managements     Sourcing Managers

Senior Managements

 Benefits of Attending

This course will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to undertake value stream mapping to eliminate waste in their organization’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.

Value Stream Mapping training workshop will offer following benefits:

  • Trace a value stream and identify waste in its flow.
  • View products from a system perspective.
  • Map the value stream’s material and information flows.
  • Prioritize activities needed to achieve the future state.
  • Plan effective change processes.
  • Establishing ‘Future State’ implementation strategy development and deployment.
  • Identifying opportunities and problem areas within existing business Value Streams.
  • Modelling and assessing the impact of any proposed changes to a key process.
