Adding value can be defined as a process with a receiver in the end. To improve the value adding, first step is to know the current state of the value chain and the need of the receiver - where the receiver can be both an internal and / or external customer. When knowing the current state and what´s critical for the receiver and for the business, future state can be defined and improvement activities started.

  • Value stream analysis starts with the high level process mapping and depending on the complexity of the process sub-mapping is needed. - It is important to see all steps in the process as a supplier / customer relation.
  • The voice of the customer (receiver) must always be defined in order to secure that the future state of the value chain generate increased value for the customer
