A business owner of a small manufacturing plant commented, The Value Stream PowerPoint presentation was a big help when we were looking for ways to improve our efficiency. It is a great learning tool and is easy to follow.

The presentation will start out with an introduction and will proceed to touch on value stream background and history, value stream mapping steps, identifying the value stream, the current and future state, administrative value streams, unique situations, implementing change, roadblocks, and will end with a knowledge check.

Value stream mapping is a lean manufacturing technique used to analyze and design the flow of materials and information required to bring a product or service to a consumer. At Toyota, where the technique originated, it is known as material and information flow mapping. It can be applied to any value chain. Value stream mapping has supporting methods that are often used in lean environments to analyze and design flows at the system level. It is often associated with manufacturing but it can be used in healthcare, service related industries, administrative and office processes.
