The Benefits of Value Stream Mapping / VSM Consulting With Incito’s Value Stream Mapping (VSM) Consulting, we create a visual tool and stream map that maps all actions required to deliver a product or service to the ultimate customer and meet customer demand with your material flow. This map flows through every layer of your organization, charting the ideal state that maximizes efficiency and lead time, minimizes cost, and helps you implement Lean Six Sigma practices at every step along the way. Reduce wait times, leverage as much information as you need, and incorporate lean manufacturing for the first time. It’s a smart way to cut down on the total time spent on your backlog, enhance connectors, benefit your product line, and improve total lead time. VSM allows organizations to create a value stream arrangement of people, processes, functions, metrics, technology, information flows, software development, and methods in a standardized and sequential order, all with one goal in mind: to most effectively meet the needs of the final consumer during each process step of your cycle time.
