Value Stream Mapping Template
The balance between supply and demand is in a constant state of flux. As the market is getting more saturated by the day, customers are becoming increasingly pretentious and difficult to convince that you will provide the value they are looking for.
The Value stream mapping process allows you to create a detailed visualization of all steps in your work process. It is a representation of the flow of goods from the supplier to the customer through your organization.
A value stream map displays all the important steps of your work process necessary to deliver value from start to finish. It allows you to visualize every task that your team works on and provides single glance status reports about each assignment’s progress.
It is important to clarify that, according to Lean, value is everything that the customer would pay for. However, when it comes to mapping a value stream, there are steps that may not bring direct value to your customer but help ensure that you will be able to deliver the final product/service.
An example of such steps is the quality inspections that are an irreplaceable step in every production process. Your customer is not paying you to do these checks, but if you deliver a final product that doesn’t meet their quality standard or expectations, they will be less willing to buy from you ever again.
