This program will focus on an Excel tool that Optima Associates has developed to assist with the Value Stream Model. The tool breaks individual processes down and allows the user to create a current state model of the value stream and then alter the data to create “what if” scenarios of the future state value stream.
This session will be heavily weighted towards the use of data and Excel as the tool to cut through the data. If you like to use Excel to assist with problem solving, you will enjoy this session. Areas of focus:
- Data needed prior to starting the values stream maps
- How to cut through large quantities of data quickly
- How to create a current state model
- How to leverage the model to create / verify the future state
