Put simply, value stream mapping requires taking the time to document the work activities that are occurring in the process as it exists today--not how the process is supposed to work, but how it's actually being performed.
Focusing on specific issues that can be addressed with Lean in hospital operations (and not global aspects of healthcare), he presents an overview of Lean methods and how practices such as value stream mapping and process observation can help reduce wasted motion for caregivers, prevent delays for patients, and improve the long-term health of a hospital.
Value Stream Mapping (VSM) (Rother & Shook 2003) is used to find value-generating activities through mapping information and material streams.
A vertically integrated manufacturer of architectural wood doors, panels and veneered components, the 127-year-old firm is a lean advocate and recently completed value stream mapping at its facilities in Two Rivers and in nearby Neenah.
Among the topics are principles, lean sigma projects, value stream mapping, introductory statistics and data, making sense of data in six sigma and lean, probability, single-population estimation, chi-square tests, linear and multiple regression, the design of experiments, and survey methods and sampling techniques.
A week-long value stream mapping event, hosted at Gayston, supported by General Dynamics, and led by the JAMS Project Office, was held in August 2007.
