PROGRAM GOALS: You will learn…
• What are value streams and the definition of the value stream mapping process
• How to define product families to determine what information in included in the map
• What data is important to collect for the value stream map
• How to construct a current state value stream map
• How to identify and quantify improvement initiatives
• The difference between localized improvement and holistic improvements
• How to apply value stream mapping techniques to improve overall company performance
• How to construct a future state value stream map
• How to develop an implementation plan to transition from the current state to the future state
• How establish a management review process to ensure continued sustainable success

This course is designed to give participants an understanding of the value stream mapping process. The focus of this course is to give participants the competence to perform value stream mapping by determining how to define product families, how to map the current state map, how to identify improvement opportunities, and how to create a future state map, and how to create the action plan to transition from the current state to the future state. Participants will be introduced to the concepts of synchronous flow and the 8 wastes and how to identify improvement opportunities for the organization. In addition, the participants will gain an understanding of how value is defined from the perspective of the customer, how value is currently created in the value stream map, and what changes can be made to improve customer value, improve flow, and reduce waste. Participants will be introduced to the mapping process and how to use the map to analyze and determine actions that will improve the overall performance of the company. Participates will apply the principles to hands on exercises to reinforce the learning.
