*Process-Flow Mapping with Value Stream Mapping
Every process has a flow. Every flow, no matter how convoluted, can be illustrated in a linear approach.
Process-Flow mapping is a simple technique for all who interface with a process actually "see" how their actions add value or unknowingly interfere with process flow. This is an easy way to identify areas for improvement.
Value Stream Mapping takes Process Flow mapping to the next level and includes information flows, defective transactions and timing issues that hamper process flow.
