Consultant: Value Stream Mapping
Not all of company
improvement activity leads
to bottom-line results. What
is worse, some improvements
do not always add value to
the customer. Some lean
efforts are nothing more
than cost reductions that
create road-blocks to lean
Value stream mapping is the
best method for guiding the
increasing customer value.
The most value in value
stream mapping is being able
to see and understand the
whole value stream process.
Departmental cost reductions
are usually quick fixes
accomplished at the expense
of others and eventually are
lost due to inadequate
process management. Mapping
helps to prioritize kaizen
efforts aimed at making a
bigger impact for customers
satisfaction instead of just
a shotgun approach. Finally,
value stream maps help
everyone agree on the
current state and what their
future state would look like. With this
shared vision, everyone
begins to move forward as a
team and lean
transformations exceed all
