Value stream maps are the blueprints for lean transformation, but there is more to a Value Stream Improvement project than value stream mapping. Value Stream Improvement (VSI) projects enable companies to identify the critical process areas needing change and begin the process of continuous improvement. The impact of these projects depends most on preparation before mapping, problem solving to design the future state, project management during implementation, and continuing support and problem solving of the value stream after implementation. This three-day workshop shows you how to define and scope value stream improvement projects, problem-solve to create lean “future state” designs, use lean tools to implement and sustain the future state, and manage implementation of a lean transformation plan.
Value Stream Improvement (VSI) is a project that addresses the goals and objectives of the business. A Manufacturer’s Edge Lean Coach will transfer knowledge of project scoping, value stream mapping and implementation planning skills to everyone responsible for improving a selected business process. It is important to identify a future state vision and detailed action plan with leadership commitment to support the recommended projects and value stream changes. To ensure the project executes, a 30/60/90 day reviews will take place to evaluate the implementation plan with countermeasures that create meaningful, sustained business results.
• Define and scope projects tied to business performance and objectives
• Create future state designs based on analysis, synthesis, and advanced lean principles
• Develop implementation plans that have agreement and commitment
• Manage implementation to plan through shared responsibility and continuous problem solving
• Lay the foundation for creating a value stream focus in your organization
