What Is Value Stream Mapping?

A value stream is another term for a process that has inputs, performs work on those inputs, and generates an output that has added value. The basic premise of a value stream is that value is added as goods or services stream through the process. Unfortunately, some actions, task, and activities continued within most all value streams do not add value; those non-value-adding task or activities represent waste in the process or value stream.

Mapping the value stream creates a visual representation of the value stream that helps point out the waste contained within the process flow. A value stream represents all of the activities and tasks needed to produce a product. Value streams start with the source of raw materials, flow through the internal processes and continue with the delivery of the product to customers.
