How To create Value Stream Map (VSM)
The new Value Stream Mapping solution found in the ConceptDraw Solution Park continues to extend the range of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM into a business graphics tool that can be used to document processes in any organization. Simply put timeline objects from library and continue to create diagram. After that put it to specific place object that illustrates processes of the production. Many organizations use value stream mapping as a key portion of their lean efforts.

When describing any computer network, we imagine a set of devices and nodes, arranged in some way. Talking about network structures, we should distinguish physical and logical network topologies, as physical topology is about devices location and logical topology illustrates data flow. In the same time, they do not have to match, and some devices, such as repeaters, may have a physical star layout, but a bus logical topology.
There are two main types of computer network topologies: Physical topology that show the physical organization of a network - equipment and types of connections. Star network topology involves a set of devices that is connected to a single hub (router). Ring network topology means that, devices connected according this topology have two connections, connecting with nearby devices to make a loop. Bus network topology is the topology presented at the current diagram. It is similar to a ring topology. The difference is that data moves up and down a linear connection, copying itself where network equipment works as bus-stations along the way. This network topology can be used for small network, or when adding an extra device into a network.

The Value stream is a totality of all actions on the projection, order composition and production: starting from creation a product project to launching this product, from order to delivery, from extraction of raw materials to ready product manufacturing. Value stream mapping is a process of visualization of these actions and creation of a detailed and graphical map.
