Welcome To Value Stream Mapping!

Understanding process flow is easier if you can actually see how materials, people and information move.  The Value Stream Map is a Lean tool that makes movement visible.  In this course, you will learn to distinguish between value and waste, how to measure process flow, and how to make both visible.  You will apply these concepts to a process from your own experience, creating a current state map followed by a future state map and finally an ideal state map.

The course is presented in 5 lessons:

  • In the introductory lesson, you will learn the logic behind the Value Stream Map and  and will define value.
  • Unit 1 (Lesson 2) discusses essential  concepts and measures.
  • Unit 2 (Lesson 3) begins the construction of the map and includes detailed instruction for executing stages one through seven–diagramming flow and measuring waste.
  • Unit 3 (Lesson 4) continues with stages 8 through 10–finding the barriers to flow and creating a future state map with estimated gains.
  • Unit 4 (Lesson 5) is the final unit and it covers imagining the ideal state and making a plan for achieving the best design of the process.

In this course, you will learn how to develop each section of a current and future state map in a step by step format. It is helpful if you practice each step as we proceed. You may handwrite the map (this is the best option) or use the value stream map template below.

At the end of this course the student will be able to:

  • Explain the logic behind the use of the Value Stream Map
  • Use and explain each element of the Value Stream Map
  • Understand and apply common VSM measures: Takt Time, Cycle Time, Lead Time and Percent Efficiency
  • Complete a current state and future/ideal state Value Stream Map using a process from the learner’s environment

The entire course will require approximately 1 hour and you will work at your own pace. Completion of a quiz is required to obtain a certificate of completion and credit hours. 

If you are seeking P.A.C.E.® Credits, completion of the P.A.C.E.® Evaluation Form is required.

The following is included in this course:

  1.  Five short instructional videos (total time 50 minutes)
  2.  Quiz-10 questions

Well designed, on-line training course that is easy to navigate and complete

This course provided by the D'Angelo advantage was easy to understand, well designed and easy for me to navigate on-line. The pace of the course was good I found the testing that was included provided good and proper feedback to see if I really was understanding the concepts presented. I have participated in many on-line training sessions in my career and find these to be at the top of the list.
