Course Overview Value Stream Mapping is one of the foundation tools for an organization that is on their Lean Implementation journey. It was first used by Toyota Co. Japan to analyze and improve its production process. Its application has since spread beyond manufacturing and has become one the preferred tool for any organization that is looking to eliminate waste in the process and maximizes the value to the customer. VSM is conducted by using a set of standardized icons that will graphically visualize the flow of material and information of the product/services through various production stages. By visualizing the flow of information and material, it aids the organization to identify the value-added and non-value added activities from the current state and identify improvement opportunities. This course aims to impart the participants the knowledge and skills to conduct effective value stream mapping in their organization.
