Value Stream Mapping is considered a fundamental tool of the lean-six sigma methodology and it is usually a starting point for identifying improvement opportunity. In our 1 day workshop, we use a process simulation, tailored to have context for the participants, as a basis for training so that participants see how the technique works in a practical sense. Participants will learn how to conduct a value stream mapping workshop, the tools & symbology used, the best methods and steps to follow, using value stream maps to identify bottleneck processes and creating current and future state maps.
We also provide additional support following the training to conduct actual mapping on-site as participants learn to apply the technique in the real world.
There are no PreRequisites for this workshop, though we recommend that participants also attend our Introduction to Lean-Six Sigma Workshop if they don’t already have a background in lean thinking.
