Value Stream Mapping Services

What is Value Stream Mapping?

Value stream mapping (VSM) is defined as a lean tool that employs a flowchart documenting every step in the process. Many lean practitioners see VSM as a fundamental tool to identify waste, reduce process cycle times, and implement process improvement.


The purpose of value-stream mapping is to identify and remove or reduce “waste” in value streams, thereby increasing the efficiency of a given value stream. Waste removal is intended to increase productivity by creating leaner operations which in turn make waste and quality problems easier to identify.


The Process

A value stream mapping engagement begins with an information and data gathering request from TPT. The type of information we ask for is:

  • Plant Layouts

  • Hourly Production Rates

  • Takt Times

  • Plan for Every Part (PFEP) Spreadsheet

  • A Current State Cycle Line Layout

If you do not have all of information listed above, it’s not a problem. We will develop what we need to provide an accurate VSM of your operations.

A plant visit and alignment discussions with stakeholders is critical in establishing goals, objectives and agreement of deliverables. The deliverable is a graphical representation of the current state operations with future Kaizen events identified for rapid process and productivity improvements. TPT works with the process stakeholders during the Kaizen events and insures the transfer of knowledge to process stakeholders for future sustainability and continuous improvement initiatives.
