Value Stream Analysis

As the old saying goes: "if you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there." Analyzing the value stream is the crucial first step to determine where you are going to go on the Lean journey. The value stream is the collection of activities necessary to produce and deliver a product or service. Value stream analysis separates those activities that contribute to value creation from activities that create waste, and identifies opportunities for improvement.

A value stream diagram is useful to divide the total value stream into value-added and non-value-added categories. The percent of total cycle time consumed by non-value-added activities is often shockingly large - in excess of 80%.

A Value-Added Flow Chart will help identify priorities for improvement. The Value Stream Map is a tool used to focus team efforts on specific waste reduction efforts. The process involves creating a current-state map of the value stream, followed by a future-state map from which specific action plans are developed.

Contract Analysis

Contract analysis is a process used to examine and track information within a contract. This trackable information could be financial or related to the status of the contract, its clauses, and changes in company policy. Contract analysis can also be comparative to previous versions if that is beneficial to the business.

Contracts are often a goldmine of information. They are a receipt of what is happening within the business and provide a timeline. By breaking down clauses and data into manageable sections, it makes it easier to understand the contract and any changes that are likely to occur. It provides instant insights into the business’ information and can be displayed in graphs, tables, or text.
