Workshop—Value Stream & Process Mapping

Value Stream & Process Mapping

How To Visualize & Improve Work Processes

In this hands-on, practical workshop, participants learn about both Value Stream Mapping and Process Mapping. They then apply their new knowledge to actual processes and value streams from their own factory or office. 

Value Stream and Process Mapping both help visualize complex manufacturing or business systems, identify waste and guide improvement efforts. The two techniques give different perspectives and both have a place.
