Abstract

Value Stream Mapping is a lean technique with origins from

manufacturing environments and specifically from the factories of

the automobile manufacturer Toyota. However, considerable work

has been done by researchers to transform the terminology drawn

from a manufacturing environment in order to fit other

environments. This project is based on this transformation so that

Value Stream Mapping can be used in the warehouse, service and

office environments of Voici La Mode Ltd. A product family was

chosen and by following the flow of products and flow of information

through a specific value stream selected, the current state was

mapped. The wastes within the value stream were identified with

the use of a set of mapping tools and through the future map

suggested, the possible ways to eliminate these wastes were

provided.
