The Lean Enterprise Value Stream Mapping
Value Stream Maps visualize for a manufacturing plant the material and information flow required to deliver a product/service to customers. This graphical representation of a process is a powerful tool that helps in the diagnosis of process efficiency and allows enterprises to develop improved processes. Value Stream Maps are used in lean manufacturing methodology to analyze and identify the process improvement opportunities that are available. 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.

SEVEN RELATED HOW TO's:
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.

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.
