Stream & Process Mapping Book
book has helpful tips on facilitating group VSM exercises
and helps put VSM in the greater Lean context. With photos
and examples of related Lean practices the book focuses on
implementing VSM, not just drawing diagrams and graphs. With
the recent publicity about Value Stream Mapping, many seem
to imagine it as another magical answer for all manufacturing
problems. In this book we recognize the benefits as
well as the limitations to mapping. 160 Pages

Your Value Stream DVD
program explains how Value Stream Mapping can be used to find waste
in your production system. It starts by discussing the problems
associated with a mass production philosophy. Dr. James Womack,
President of the Lean Enterprise Institute shares some of his experiences
with mapping and what kind of reaction most people have when they
learn to see waste within their operation. The three types of information
needed to build a value stream map are explained along with an explanation
of how the timeline calculation at the bottom of the map highlights
excessive inventories. An in-depth example of value stream mapping
is shown at the Donnelly Corporation. This automotive supplier made
major improvements in quality and delivery by using value stream
mapping to help focus improvement efforts in the right areas. Several
different future state icons are explained in detail to show how
lean techniques such as kanban, flow, and supermarkets operate in
real world conditions.
