VSM + Simulation
Taking Your Map to the Next Level!
Where does simulation fit in with (and how does it benefit) a Lean process improvement analysis? In this eBook, we examine how simulation compares and contrasts with value stream mapping (VSM)—and show why simulation products like FlexSim are a great way to take your project to the next level.
In just 15 minutes, you'll discover:
- A (very brief) overview of value stream mapping and its advantages and disadvantages.
- The three big ways that simulation overcomes some of the limitations of value stream mapping.
- A case study with Advanced Process Optimization, Inc. showing how simulation can reinforce traditional Lean/Six Sigma techniques.
