Value Stream Analysis

What is Value Stream Analysis?

Value Stream Analysis analyzes all the specific actions required to bring a specific product through the three critical management tasks.

  1. Problem Solving:  Running from concept through detailed design and engineering to production.
  2. Information Management: Running from order taking through detailed scheduling to delivery.
  3. Physical Transformation: Proceeding form raw materials to a finished product in the hands of the customer.

Value stream analysis will help to identify:

  • Unambiguous value-adding steps.
  • Steps that do not add value but are unavoidable.
  • Steps that create no value and are immediately avoidable.
