Value stream mapping is a Lean technique helps you make your Operations Management more efficient. You'll also learn about creating a future-state value stream map, and eliminating process blocks. The course also covers how recognize how a value stream map improves an organization's efficiency. And it explores ways to identify sources of waste and issues with quality.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • recognize the key objectives of value stream mapping
    sequence the steps in the value stream mapping process
    identify the types of data required to create a current-state value stream map
    match the symbols used in the mapping process to the data they represent
  • identify sources of waste in the current-state map
    identify process blocks in a current state map using cycle time and takt time
    recognize the features of a pull system for future state mapping
