Value Stream Mapping and Lean Manufacturing

This is a useful technique that can be utilized as a part of a ‘lean’ situation to enhance the ‘lead time’. This framework is helpful in the assembling procedure as well as in coordinations, benefit related enterprises, human services and item improvement. It is a representation instrument arranged to the TPS. It helps in comprehension and streamlining work forms utilizing the different ‘apparatuses’ and ‘strategies’ of ‘lean administration’. The objective of Visual Stream Mapping is to distinguish and show squander in the framework, and take out the same. This framework is taken as a beginning stage for the makers, generation engineers, providers, schedulers, relates and even clients to recognize and take out waste in any shape. Accordingly, it can be seen that the visual mapping stream isn’t just a specialized instrument yet additionally a key arranging device and a change administration apparatus.
Keeping in mind the end goal to accomplish this end, the visual stream mapping framework maps the stream of materials from the time they enter the manufacturing plant premises, through the generation line and up to the time they touch base at the dock for shipment as completed items. Mapping out the different exercises in the assembling procedure (down circumstances, process durations, in-process stock, and material moves and so on.) imagines the present condition of the procedure exercises, and aides that state to a future wanted state. The system by and large incorporates the ‘physical’ mapping of the present state while additionally concentrating on the ‘future’ state. This, at a later stage, would fill in as the venturing stone for future ‘lean’ administration procedures.
In the Toyota Production System (TPS) seven squanders were distinguished. These squanders were regularly acknowledged. They are:-
Wrong handling
Transport(inordinate delay)
Pointless inventory(excess stock)
Overproduction(faster than should be expected pace)
Defects(correction of missteps)
Pointless movement
Wrong handling
Having distinguished the seven intrinsic squanders, the seven Value Stream Mapping instruments are as under:-
Process movement mapping
Store network reaction
Creation assortment pipe
Physical structure mapping
Choice point investigation
Request intensification mapping
Quality channel mapping
There are four stages to Value Stream Mapping:-
a) Define and pick the item and, or the item family.
b) Create the present state Value Stream Mapping.
c) Create the Future state Value Stream Mapping.
d) Develop an activity intend to make the FSVSM and the CSVSM
