Training Kit—Value Stream Mapping

Value Stream Mapping Training Kit

Everything Needed for Internal Training

With this training kit, your own instructor has everything necessary for an internal program that teaches and develops a value stream map for one or more of your processes. Through this, participants visualize the inefficiencies, imbalances and inventory buildups that generate so much waste. 

After the three days of learning and doing, participants learn to apply Lean Manufacturing principles and develop a future state map that eliminates much of the waste previously identified. The identify opportunity areas for Kaizen events, prioritize them and set the stage for an implementation plan.
