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.
