Transforming your traditional enterprise system into a Lean enterprise system can seem daunting, but MRC has the solution.

Value Stream MappingJim Womack and Daniel Jones established a set of principles necessary for this transformation, including: Defining Value, Identifying the Value Stream, Creating Flow, Pulling to Customer Demand, and Pursuing Perfection

At MRC, we help you re-examine these principles with Value Stream Mapping (VSM) services based on creating Value Stream Maps, as outlined in John Schook’s, formerly of Toyota and currently of Lean Enterprise Institute, book Learning to See.

Our VSM services have several anticipated outcomes, including visualizing the flow of your Value Stream, identifying waste, and illustrating material and information flows to define your current state. We also create a future state design to serve as a blueprint for Lean Transformation, prioritizing point-solution activities needed to achieve the future state.

By using our powerful tools to map the flow of products and services, manufacturers can eliminate waste and continuously improve their processes. Trust MRC to deliver the solution you need to transform your enterprise system into a Lean enterprise system.
