How do you make a future VSM?

How do you make a future VSM?

Let’s see what improvements we foresee.

  1. Step 1: Create a Cycle Time / Takt Time Graph.
  2. Step 2: Decide if you will build to stock or make to order.
  3. Step 3: Calculate Optimal Crew Size and Implement One Piece Flow.
  4. Step 4: Pull when One Piece Flow is not Possible.
  5. Step 5: Improve Communication and Schedule a Pacemaker.

What is future state VSM?

A future state value stream map (VSM) is simply a projection of how a value stream should look in the future, generally 6 to 12 months. When a current state value stream map is created, problem areas become apparent.

How do I create a VSM map?

How to draw a value stream map

  1. Determine the scope of your value stream map. Create your start and end points first, and place them in the top left and right corners of your document.
  2. Map the steps of your process.
  3. Add inventory and wait times.
  4. Designate the direction of information flows.
  5. Create a timeline.

Which are the components of VSM?

A value stream map is made up of a three distinct looking parts: a process map, a corresponding timeline, and information flow. The process map is comprised of the steps and the information associated with the steps of your process.

What is value stream mapping examples?

Examples are inventory type and size, cycle time, change-over time, machinery or process uptime and downtime, number of workers, shifts worked, available working hours and batch size. All of these could result in finding efficiencies and cutting waste. Add that process data to the data boxes of your Value Stream Map.

How do I create a VSM in Powerpoint?

Create a value stream map

  1. Click File > New.
  2. Type value stream map in the Search box, click the Start Searching button, and then double-click Value Stream Map when it appears.
  3. From the Value Stream Map Shapes stencil, drag shapes onto the page to represent your processes, information, and materials.

How do I create a VSM in Word?

Launch Edraw value stream map software, go to the File menu, click New > Business Diagram, then click the icon of Value Stream Mapping and select a value stream mapping example under Examples menu.

What does VSM tool help produce?

Many lean practitioners see VSM as a fundamental tool to identify waste, reduce process cycle times, and implement process improvement. VSM is a workplace efficiency tool designed to combine material processing steps with information flow, along with other important related data.

What is current state process?

Current State Process Mapping is a course that teaches employees how to map current state processes, so they can paint a picture of the ‘as-is’ with a goal to make the process more efficient and better for everyone involved.

How to design the future state value stream (VSM)?

The most important thing in designing the Future State VSM is using a structural approach to generate the Kaizen events, to make sure the kaizen events directly improve the performance of the Value Stream ( Panneman, 2017 ). The kaizen event on yield improvement at the assembly is a good example of that.

What is Step 3 and 4 of Future state VSM?

Step 3, 4 & 5 of future state VSM are about IMPLEMENTING THE PULL SYSTEM. More information about the 3 possible pull connections can be found > here <. First we check where we can implement one-piece flow.

What should I know before creating a future state map?

Before you create a future state map, you should have already created a current state value stream map. A future state map identifies improvement to be made to the value stream that will shorten the overall lead time.

Do you have a dream for the future of VSM?

I Have a Dream! The process of creating a future state VSM can be quite exciting as creativity and excitement merge together. It’s time to dream a little as we work to create better, safer, more productive workplace. And, please be sure to have some fun during the process!
