Value stream maps for manufacturing give organizations a plan that details all the problems encountered in current processes and where to improve, in order to achieve positive results. With technology that provides real-time data for organizations, manufacturing teams can adopt processes that emphasize continuous improvement and eliminate wasteful processes and spending.
Accelerating Operational Excellence in 2015: Improving the Value Stream with Mobility
Accelerating Operational Excellence
in 2015: Improving the Value Stream
Addressing operations challenges
Catavolt launched a survey titled “How Leading Manufacturers are
Accelerating Operational Excellence” in September 2014, to gain insight on
how manufacturing organizations are working to continuously improve their
operations, workﬂows and business processes.
We collected 111 responses from manufacturing professionals in various
disciplines on trends and technology that are driving operational excellence.
Increased competition in the market, meeting customer expectations, rapidly
changing plant ﬂoor conditions, and the need to increase revenue, is pushing
manufacturing organizations across all industries towards more efﬁcient
Manufacturing organizations are increasing
operational excellence investments in 2015
• Value stream maps for manufacturing give organizations a plan that details all the
problems encountered in current processes and where to improve, in order to
achieve positive results.
• New technology is giving manufacturing teams the ability to easily map their value
stream, make process improvements, and identify bottlenecks in operations.
• With technology that provides real-time data for organizations, manufacturing
teams can adopt processes that emphasize continuous improvement and eliminate
wasteful processes and spending.
of manufacturing thought leaders plan to in-
crease investments for operational excellence
initiatives for their organizations in 2015.
What is value stream mapping?
• Understand the current manufacturing
processes and identify bottlenecks
excess of materials or inventory
poor or incomplete data
Why is value stream mapping important
for manufacturing organizations?
With value stream mapping, manufacturing organizations can:
Identify opportunities to reduce process time and areas of improvement.
Process steps and data
Value Stream Mapping:
The Current State
A current value stream map in
manufacturing enables team to see
Value Stream Mapping:
The Future State
A future state map in manufacturing en-
ables teams to pinpoint ways to change
current processes to reduce waste and
make improvements internally.
Value Stream Mapping:
The Ideal State
An ideal state map in manufacturing en-
ables teams to develop a shared vision of
what the organization wants to achieve
for their operations.
How mobility helps manufacturing
Mobility is a tool that helps
manufacturing organizations reach
their “ideal state” in value stream
Value stream mapping is the process by which manufacturing
companies identify areas for process improvements. By creating
value stream maps, organizations can provide optimum value
internally and to their customers, through a complete value
creation process with mimimum waste.
With mobility, value stream mapping is much more effective and
easier to understand for manufacturing organizations. Mobility
give teams access to collaborative communication tools and real-
time data needed to visualize and analyze wasteful spending and
The beneﬁts of manufacturing apps
• Provide real-time visibility in to processes
of materials in real-time
Mobility creates customer value at every step of
the manufacturing process
