Value Stream Mapping
Once you have decided to become a Lean Enterprise, you will need an action plan. Value Stream Mapping is the tool of choice to help you decide where, and in what order, changes need to be implemented. Value Stream Mapping is a simple yet effective way of visually depicting the current situation and then the desired outcome with an improved flow of the operation. These before and after maps depict both physical movement and information flow required to make things happen. Value Stream Mapping works by showing the actual state of the business rather than the theoretical one. It provides a view of reality at the work place.
