The Value Stream Map is an essential Lean tool that focuses on seeing waste. The Value Stream Map is a visual representation of the flow of people, materials and information. Using measures, the tool demonstrates visually where flow is slowed or interrupted. Using this critical information, teams identify steps in the process that require adjustment or elimination, find and improve ineffective information pathways, enhance the movement of materials and optimize the functions that transform inputs into outputs that satisfy customer demand.
