Value Stream Mapping (VSM)
In this course, participants will receive training on Value Stream Mapping and will apply the learned principles to a specified product family in the company. This course teaches participants how to gather the information required to eliminate all non-value adding waste and how to use the information to plan the implementation of Lean activities. Participants will learn the steps necessary for creating a current state value stream map from customer back to raw material and develop a future state vision to act as a blueprint for Lean activities.
- Overview of Lean Manufacturing with Live Simulation or equivalent
The future-state map created by the class will act as a blueprint for additional Lean manufacturing training and implementations. The impact to the company will be calculated after the implementation plan is created; however, it is anticipated that when implemented, the plan will result in a significant reduction in lead times, inventory, and floor space, and an increase in productivity.
