Value Steam Mapping (VSM) refers to a basic tool that showcases the state of a business’ operations. “The Current State Map” refers to the current state while “The Future State Map” refers to what the state could be after improvements are implemented. The flow of information and materials through all the steps in the value chain is followed by the Value Stream mapping. The depiction of these flows is visual. This mapping will let everyone understand the waste there is in the processes and its sources. Delays, extended lead times, overstocking, work in progress and other non-value added features would be brought into the open.
