With the recent publicity about Value Stream Mapping, many seem to imagine it as another magical answer for all manufacturing problems. In this book, we have taken a practical and realistic point of view, recognizing the benefits as well as the limitations to mapping.
This book acquaints the reader with Value Stream Mapping as well as Process Mapping, and thereby provides a dual set of tools. This dual set is far more effective than either technique alone.
Overview of Book
- Begins with a general introduction to the topic at hand and divides the concepts into easily manageable sections.
- Leads the reader through Process Mapping Technique from start to finish, present to future.
- Value Stream Mapping is covered with an equally in-depth analysis that not only explains the virtues of the system, but also acknowledges when it is not necessary. These chapters feature valuable sections with tips for facilitators and planning sessions.
- The final chapters focus on combining these systems with Lean concepts and manufacturing strategy.
- Last but not least, the book emphasizes the importance of the human aspect of these systems.
