Use Value Stream Mapping to Visualize and Improve the Dynamic Flow of Work.

Fixing kinks in our work processes would be easy if we could just see them. Since most work (the work itself) is not visible, we need a tool. Value stream mapping uses process flow tools to help visualize the dynamic flow of work. Once the bottlenecks and constraints are visible, you can work them out. In addition, once a constraint is removed, it just shifts the problem somewhere else; a value stream map allows planning the sequence of multiple improvements and projects.

Starting with why you should use this approach, you will gain knowledge in how value stream maps fit in the overall hierarchy of Lean implementation. Emphasis is placed on the role of people on change, and how involvement of those affected by the change can help. The session, with expert speaker Douglas C. Wood, will start with a high level overview and take you into practical application steps such as figuring out what your product families are, learning the six steps to map the current state, implementing the seven guidelines to identify waste, and asking eight questions to map out the desired future state.
