Course Overview

Preparing for Value Stream Mapping is just as important as mapping the process itself. This course provides an overview of the metrics and measurements you will need to take before beginning in order to create the best possible Value Stream Maps.

Learn the benefits of Flow and Pull, and why this system consistently outperforms the more traditional mass production system. You will also be introduced to data boxes and their use in your VSM, as well as an explanation of Takt Time and why this is such an important metric to use.

Why take this course?

The lead up and planning stage for value stream mapping is just as important as the mapping itself.

What am I going to learn?

  • What data boxes are and how they are used when mapping the value stream
  • What Takt Time is and how to calculate it
  • How to use the concepts of continuous flow and pull to begin improving your value stream

Who is the intended audience?

Everyone who wants to properly prepare for value stream mapping

What are the prerequisites?

A basic understanding of value stream mapping

What am I going to receive?

  • Complete instruction for the planning stages prior to mapping the value stream
  • PDF transcripts for your review
  • A list of the terms used in the videos and their definitions
  • Power Point presentations to support your learning
  • Images from the videos to use as you wish
  • PDF versions of the forms featured in the videos
  • A badge rewarded upon successful completion of the course

Course Reviews

  1. In-depth
    This VSM Lesson provided a clear understanding on the topic. It also clarify the definition of takt time and cycle time in contrast to what other textbooks would say.
