A VSM is a process which harnesses the knowledge of the team, the in-house process experts, to create an agreed picture of the process and the wastes and challenges that exist within it. Importantly, it also allows in a controlled, but engaging way, the opportunity for people to identify potential solutions to the issues identified.
Wasteful activities can be defined as any activity not adding value to the product or service from the customer’s perspective. These Non-Value Adding (NVA) activities can be described in 7 (+1) categories. A good technique to identify wastes is to visit the workplace, observe the conditions, processes and activities, and engage with the workers.
