Value stream mapping is an objective approach to identifying and reducing waste within your processes.  A Value Stream Map (VSM) allows you to analyze all the steps in the request and delivery of a specific product or service. The Current State VSM documents time and motion, and unlike a flow chart, exposes when nothing is happening to move the process along.  This enables you to recognize opportunities to reduce waste and delays and to standardize processes.  This information leads to the development of a Future State VSM, which is a visual layout of the improved process.
