Process Mapping / Value Stream Mapping


Holistically reduce waste in your processes. Identify and streamline a single process like payments, RFI’s, or change orders. Or streamline an entire company’s or project’s “value stream” from start to finish. For example, from RFQ through design to project turnover, or from customer request through engineering to fabrication and installation.

Process Mapping / Value Stream Mapping

What you'll learn

What you'll learn

How to find wasteful bottlenecks in your processes.


How to find out how people are actually using a process, not what the manual says and not what supervisors think they are doing, but what they are actually doing.


How to get your team to collaboratively design a better Future State for each process, one that saves time and money and respects the people.


How to devise a series of actions that will get your team to the better Future State.


How to “measure success” from your improvements and build momentum for continuous improvement.


The differences between Value Stream Mapping and Process Mapping and when to use each.

Description

Description

What percentage of the time do you receive work that is 100% complete, accurate and ready for you to use? You don’t have to tweak it, put it into another database or ask questions about it? You get it, you use it, and you send it on?

How often do you think the work you give to the next person is in a format they would say is 100% complete and accurate for them to work with?

We create a Process Map in order to find those inaccuracies and inefficiencies, but also to truly understand your work and your organization’s work, from start to finish. Or even to create a new process.

Similarly, if a project or organization wants to reduce waste and improve the wholesale delivery of value (services, goods or an entire project), it needs to map the entire Value Stream, start to finish. Then imagine a better Future State and create a Transformation (Action) Plan to make those improvements real.

Value Stream Mapping (VSM) begins by defining the scope of what is the be mapped in a collaborative Charter. Based on that VSM Charter, the team meets and maps the Current State of how Value is produced, Process by Process, and comes up with bright ideas for improvement. and establish the Current State Metrics.

In a follow-on session the same team creates a Future State Map, pulling from the end of the Value Stream to the beginning, listing only those Processes which are essential and in the most streamlined order. Future State metrics are compiled and compared with the Current State to see how much time and money can be saved while delivering the greatest value to the customer. These metrics help you measure your level of success and know where you’ll need to do further refinements. Finally, a Transition Plan or implementation plan is developed to get to the Future State.

In a Process Map (one piece of the Value Stream), these same steps are performed, and can often be done in 2-4 few hours instead of 2-3 days.

And the results can be dramatic: one team, on a Federal construction project, used Process Mapping of Change Orders to reduce Lead Time from an average 214 days (7 months) per Change Order to less than 90 days and reduce total staff Process Time from 22 days to 4.
