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.

I passed the test but the system still shows unfinished. Not updating.
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.
Loved this one!
