Value Stream Mapping within Logistics Operations
James
I am currently in the process of mapping the supply chain within our facility. Having read both Value Stream Mapping (Tapping, Luyster & Shuker) and Learning to See (Rother & Shock) I should be focusing on a product family to assess the value and the waste rather than the overall material flow within the said process. What I wish to capture is the waste within the logistics support functions. For example good receipt into store and engine dispatch from store rather than the flow of material throughout the internal process. Any ideas in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

Remember it's important to first document the "as-is" VSM before focusing on waste. Looking for waste before understanding the system often leads to fixing the wrong problem.
