Value Stream Mapping
Value Stream Maps visualize for a manufacturing plant the material and information flow required to deliver a product/service to customers. They are used in lean manufacturing methodology to identify the process steps, analyze them, and improve 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.
After reviewing the production steps on the map, the company can identify the handoff steps and strives to eliminate them. These can be defects or overproduction leading to wasteful spending on the raw materials and storage the useless inventory. In software development, VSM helps reveal inefficiencies, reduce the number of steps, eliminate the need for rework, identify delays occurred for different reasons, the waste occurred from lack of internal documentation or a partially completed work, which includes the frozen money and requires more money to be finished, as well as additional efforts and don't bring profit.
