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.

Any hierarchical structure of any company can be represented as a triangle or a pyramid. You can create a pyramid diagram and pyramid chart of any complexity using special libraries included in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM. Actually, any knowledge or chain of facts can also be depicted as a pyramid.
A wide range of graph and chart are utilized in marketing to maintain documentation and various visual issues, that deal with marketing information and data. The marketing value pyramid can be created to illustrate how the value of company, or product is based on its competitiveness. To design this diagram we used ConceptDraw DIAGRAM drawing tools in conjunction with Pyramid solution for Solution Park.

Value stream mapping is a lean-management method for analyzing the current state and designing a future state for the series of events that take a product or service from its beginning through to the customer. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Value Stream Mapping solution from the Quality area of ConceptDraw Solution Park is effective for implementation a value stream mapping (VSM) process and for creating Value Stream Maps.
Problems are obstacles and challenges that one should overcome to reach the goal. They are an inseparable part of any business, and the success of an enterprise often depends on ability to solve all problems effectively. The process of problem solving often uses rational approach, helping to find a suitable solution.
Using Fishbone Diagrams for Problem Solving is a productive and illustrative tool to identify the most important factors causing the trouble. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM extended with Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park is a powerful tool for problem solving with Fishbone Ishikawa diagram graphic method.
