Value Stream Map Examples

Value Stream Map Examples for review and comparison


After 4 posts about value stream mapping, I thought it would be useful to show a value stream map example. It's easier to learn by seeing examples of how other people use this lean tool.

I tried to choose value stream map examples from different areas, including the environmental and software industries, so there's a variety of multiple processes for you to look at.

I like seeing how different the maps turn out, depending on the process. Each value stream map reflects the uniqueness of a specific business, yet they all share common terminology and symbology, making them easy to follow.

Just like a road map helps you find your way through unknown territory, a value stream map guides you through an unfamiliar process.

5 Value Stream Map Examples:

For each example below, I've included the link for the source file. In some cases there's a detailed explanation of how the value stream map was created. I encourage you to click on those links to find out more about each map.
