Participants will learn the basic techniques of creating a Value Stream Map. The students will practice on a text-book exercise and then will map a real process within their own company. On day 2, the students will learn the methodologies for applying Lean tools to eliminate waste in the value stream. The workshop concludes with the students drawing a future state map and writing an action plan for achieving that future state.
As a result, the company will have an actionable plan and layout for a successful implementation.
This course is designed to introduce participants to Value Stream Mapping in a hands-on manner. Participants will develop their ability to “see the flow” and design future state value streams.
- The workshop is designed for up to 12 people.
- The workshop is 2 full days for a total of 16 hours.
