Value Stream Mapping in a job shop

I am currently working in a company where I have been told to implement VSM. But the problem is that its manufacturing activities are like a job shop and there is no repeatability. Is VSM possible in such environment?

I am sure it is possible, no doubts. Waste can be found and eliminated everywhere. Read once again what is VSM and try it :)

I implemented VSM in a job shop environment. I broadly grouped products based on common processes and prepare VSM for the group rather than product.

The purpose of VSM is to map current state or visualize current state then try to map for a state without muda or wastages from the view point of the customer.
I think one can easily identify muda in any place whether it be a traditional tailor shop / job shop or a common restaurant where you have to prepare a specific dish as per the customer demand everytime.
VSM is very simple in case you understand its basics. It is a visualisation tool just like painter or photographer helps in visualisation.

VSM is like a trail to show how products are completed by adding values in the process.
 

 
VSM for Job Shop
Prakash saitwal, Management Consultant, India, Member
Take details of the jobs carried out during a pre-defined time. Analyse the values pattern or the cost structure of these jobs. Objective of these analysis should be to find out common cost heads or major cost haeds that are common among all the products. This analysis should give you inputs which are the factors on which the VSM exercise should be focusing.
 

 
Makigami for Job Shop Environments

Dear Harshil, try to look at the Makigami technique. I think this will fit your requirements better. It is a mixture of Swimlanes, VSM and Waste analysis in one.
