Value Stream Mapping/VSM (Current State). Seat Lic

Value stream mapping is a management tool used to get a complete look at how an operation transforms raw material (or service needs) into a finished product that customers want to pay for. Value stream maps show material flow, information flow, and the 'heartbeat' of the company (how steadily inventory moves). They also highlight many important data points.

The purpose of this map is to show where improvements can be made to transform the current state map into a future state map. Because the value stream map provides a unique perspective of the operation that leaders seldom get, they are able to make much more meaningful improvements. The changes that the team must make to get from the current state to the future state form the basis for a kaizen activity plan.
