The buffer double slap ...

If you want to attack lead time, the most effective approach is to reduce or eliminate buffers and inventories. Buffers and inventories also have another negative impact on productivity as shown in the image below.

To handle a buffer or inventory you need manhours, equipment and space. All this is cost for non-value added activities and is called the buffer "double slap". Start reducing lead time today by contacting us at YourFlow!

do you still roll up your VSM and hope that the glue won`t get dry before the job is finished

Working with value stream mapping should be an ongoing activity that never rest from challenging your productivity indicators. The quantitative approach that VSM provide will support the qualitative discussion when evaluating improvements. Going into VSM as a project will fail, you may have some short term results but long term continuous improvements that really affect productivity will not be a reality. To be able to establish a new standard there is a need for an easy to use tool that don´t stop you from keeping the maps up-dated. And if the tool saves time and also supports teamwork, so everyone have the opportunity to participate and contribute! Than you have the right prerequisites to achieve more!

Heavy work-load to use VSM the old way......

A lot of companies started to use Value stream mapping many years ago.

Some of them started VSM as a project, or as a part of a project. When project ended, improvement work based on VSM also ended.....

Some major experiences were the work load to up-date or keep the VSM up-dated....sometimes it felt unbearable.......
