Understanding the Value Stream is the next step. This is done by mapping all the steps involved from Customer order to delivery of product / service to the customer. Here, extensive detail must go into understanding the cycle time of each step, rework %, lost time, uptime of machines (where applicable),number of staff members involved in the task, and other information. Your goal is to see waste , so understanding accurate data will also give you a few clues as to any anomalies going on and where the waste is (Remember Genchi Genbutsu – going to the source to find facts!)
