Learn how to create a current
state value stream map
Value Stream Mapping is a Lean Manufacturing tool that through the flow diagram can provide documenting every step of a manufacturing process. For the start simply put timeline objects from library and continue to create diagram. After that put it to specific place object that illustrate processes of the production. Many lean practitioners use Value Stream Mapping as a fundamental tool to identify waste, cut process cycle times, and implement process improvement.

Value Stream & Process Flow Diagramming Software is a very popular Lean Manufacturing tool that allows to see and visualize in details the company's processes and current state, the flow of material and information, and thus gives the possibility to analyze the efficiency of company's processes and then develop improved processes. Value stream maps are also a good way to define the steps that do not add value to the end product, in other words waste in a company's processes.
