The Value Stream (Lean Manufacturing Systems)

For this assignment you must go to a business, workplace or process of your choosing (pick the next place you are going). This can be a business for food service (restaurant); manufacturing; medical care (medical office); retail (Walmart, Whole Foods, Best Buy, Lowes, etc.) or other. Observe a Value Stream (pick one if there is more than one) and how it flows. Take some notes and maybe some pictures.

Describe the Value Stream in words and a block (process) diagram.

Observe and discuss how each of the process element helps or impedes flow (for example, is it a batching operation?).

How well does the Value Stream flow and can you suggest some improvements (you do not be detailed in how to solve problems but you certainly can make some insightful suggestions)?

Make sure to apply the academic principles and concepts from Chapter 3 on Flow.
