Value Stream Mapping Symbols

VSM symbols are the best for a production process designing. The entire Value Stream Mapping method uses a graphical representation of the manufacturing process, factors' pros and cons, that all stakeholders can easily understand. Value Stream Mapping is a graphical technique that provides possibilities to improve analysis of a manufacturing process, at the stage of the transferring information or materials that required to deliver a product or service to the customer.

"Value stream mapping is a lean management principle used to analyze and design the flow of materials and information required to bring a product or service to a consumer. Pioneered by Henry Ford in the 1920s, perfected by Toyota. At Toyota, it is known as "material and information flow mapping". It can be applied to nearly any value chain. ...
Value stream mapping has supporting methods that are often used in Lean environments to analyze and design flows at the system level (across multiple processes).
Although value stream mapping is often associated with manufacturing, it is also used in logistics, supply chain, service related industries, healthcare, software development, product development, and administrative and office processes." [Value stream mapping. Wikipedia]
