This course has been specially designed for those who wish drive process improvements in a structured way. Process mapping is about understanding your process and is the first step to improving it. Value Stream Mapping is a special process mapping tool that challenges us to look at the process in terms of how each process step adds or does not add value from the point of view of our end customers. The focus on non-value adding activities and waste removal strategies help drive efficiency and speed. As a result we spend less time and efforts!
The course is practically based on a real case study which develops as we progress through it. We build and analyze together a Value Stream Map step by step. Theory gets highlighted through the case study examples. Apart from its practical focus, we explore both predictable and non-predictable designs, i.e. strategies for both stable and unstable processes as the reality is that processes do not exist in isolation and level of process maturity varies largely even within smaller departments. Content also covers line balancing, one-piece flow production design, pull system, Just-in-Time principles, Kanbans.
