This is the class to get your Lean journey moving! Value stream mapping is a tool that will allow you to see how work moves through your facility. You’ll learn how to construct a current state map that captures not only the flow of work, but information such as inventory, process times, and setup times. Mapping will allow you to compare production lead-time to processing time. After the current state is established, the workshop will focus on how to “Lean out” a value stream. In the case study, attendees will apply guidelines to create a future state map. Finally, developing an implementation plan is covered so you’ll know how and where to begin improving a value stream.
