The VSM-PowerTool with pre-programmed math

Unlike Visio

(which does only rudimentary math),

and unlike the expensive cumbersome add-ins to Visio,

(where you are expected to program and debug your own math —
importing and exporting to and from Excel)...

with this Excel value stream mapping template,

you can simply unhide rows of pre-programmed value stream analysis
to easily answer the common questions that were the reason for
mapping your value stream in the first place.

And (unlike Visio and its add-ins)

you can use everything you know about Excel to personalize your maps.

Supply Chain Value Stream Map

Anyone who has attempted to manage a value stream map beyond their own 4 walls knows that the math and charts are different.

Visio wouldn't know the difference — because the symbols are the same —
but the math and charts are very different.

Again... rather than working late to try to program these different formulas and charts yourself... your Systems2win bundle of lean value stream templates comes with ALL of the tools that you will never outgrow.

Product Family Matrix

aka Product Quantity Product Rounding PQPR Matrix

Your first step is to identify your product families —
(products and services sharing similar processes),
and Systems2win provides the ideal tool for defining your product families.

You will then create one value stream map per product family,
and then (optionally) use Excel's scenarios to analyze different numbers for different products — all on one drawing!

(try doing that in Visio...)

Process Steps List

Regardless of whether you are doing Lean ManufacturingLean Office, or Lean Healthcare, the second step is to walk the gemba (where the work is done) and write down a list of the process steps that you observe

Value Stream Analysis — fast and easy

VSM process steps
Process Steps Analysis

Take your value stream map to another level

Import your Old State comparison data with a click of a button.
Analyze multiple scenarios on a single drawing.
Insert unlimited rows of user data — with all the calculation power of Excel —
and analyze Old vs. Improved State for anything important to your process.

Tip: More and more of our new customers are coming from experienced lean teams
that already have dozens of legacy maps drawn with less capable software —
and frustrated team members are sometimes using their own money to buy
Systems2win software to answer the more sophisticated value stream analysis questions that their management team is (finally) beginning to ask — and their legacy software can't answer.

Value Stream Management

and with math, charts, and analyses to reveal and solve root problems

Why just draw your value stream?
When you can so easily have the information you need to improve it.

    or hours

Easily scales large or small

  • Drill down to swim lane flowcharts, Standard Work, Layout Diagrams,
