VALUE CHAIN MAPPING

1. LEARN BY YOURSELF & CHALLENGE YOUR WAY OF DOING

 

WHY

Make the processes and the mudas visible. VSM is used to determine the activities to be undertaken to improve performances, and especially to reduce the lead-time.

HOW

To improve a process, it is necessary to analyze it critically, each problem detected being a track of progress.

During the preparation phase, the process is chosen, the team is designed, the objectives are set and the timetable is defined.

The mapping is spread over 2 or 3 days depending on the complexity of the process analyzed.

​​​​​

  1. Choice of level of detail, select a product to follow and build a competent team.

  2. Description and visualization of the stages, preferably with post-it

  3. Recording of data relating to each stage (working time, waiting time, checking time)

  4. Highlighting mudas

  5. Calculation of the overall values: working time (treatment), flow time (sum of waiting)

  6. Proposals for improvement, definition of priorities, establishment of an action plan by a CI roadmap.
