Value Stream Mapping is a tool to document, analyze, and improve the flow of materials required to produce a product. It’s critical to prioritize improvements and drive Lean transformation. The course introduces the use of Lean concepts for selecting product families, mapping the current state value stream of a selected product family, and creating a plan and management system to transform the value stream to achieve customer expectations at ever lower cost. The training will be held at TASUS Texas which will allow for participants to get hands-on experience of mapping a value stream in a live production environment.
