Value-Stream Mapping for Manufacturing
Value Stream Mapping is a Lean Manufacturing tool that use a flow diagram to document in great detail every step of a manufacturing process. Many organizations use value stream mapping as a key portion of their lean efforts. This graphical representation of a process is a powerful tool that helps in the diagnosis of process efficiency and allows companies to develop improved processes. Many lean practitioners use Value Stream Mapping as a fundamental tool to identify waste, cut process cycle times, and implement process improvement.

This mind map shows how Value Stream Maps can be represented as a mind map. Value Stream Maps can help a manufacturing team visualize the material and information flow required to deliver a product or a service to customers. Value Stream Maps are used in the Lean Manufacturing methodology to analyze and identify potential process improvement opportunities.

A Flowchart is a graphically representation of the process that step-by-step lead to the solution the problem. The geometric figures on the Flowchart represent the steps of the process and are connected with arrows that show the sequence of the actions. The Flowcharts are widely used in engineering, architecture, science, analytics, government, politics, business, marketing, manufacturing, administration, etc.

A causal model is an abstract concept, that describes the causal mechanisms of a system, by noting certain variables and their influence on each other, in an effort to discover the cause of a certain problem or flaw. This model is presented in diagram form by using a fishbone diagram.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software enhanced with Fishbone Diagrams solution helps you create business productivity diagrams from Fishbone diagram templates and examples, that provide to start using of the graphic method for the analysis of problem causes. Each predesigned Fishbone Diagram template is ready to use and useful for instantly drawing your own Fishbone Diagram.
