Value Stream Mapping on the Fast Track
Quickly and easily apply lean principles to improve performance and eliminate
waste with LeanView for Visio.
The more efficiently a company delivers what the market demands, the more it will increase revenues, lower operating costs, and improve profitability. This is where Lean principles come in: providing a systematic approach to identifying and eliminating waste, or non-value-added activities. When it comes to Lean Transformation, leading organizations in manufacturing, healthcare, and other environments rely on Bluespring’s LeanView to take Value Stream Mapping (VSM) to the next level.
What has traditionally involved a process of butcher paper and spreadsheet calculations, the time-consuming process of VSM is notoriously prone to inconsistency in the quality and completeness of analysis, the format of deliverables, and the effectiveness of outcomes. This process has failed to allow for iterative analysis, scalability, and visibility beyond the immediate term. In the end, this flawed process slows the rate of progress and jeopardizes an organization’s commitment to Lean Transformation.
LeanView stops the madness and allows you to cut straight to the heart of what matters by easily turning native Visio diagrams into dynamic data-driven value stream maps.
Using familiar lean symbols, concepts, calculations, and terminology, LeanView extends Microsoft Visio with a Value Stream Mapping template that delivers these core benefits:
Enables teams to more rapidly and consistently visualize, analyze, and transform value streams using proven lean principles.
Closes the communication gap by converting VSMs into electronic business intelligence that can be easily shared across the team and enterprise.
