The Lean Benchmark Report

Even more important, without the use of technology, the VSM is difficult to “operation- alize” directly or precisely; companies that have technology-enabled their value streams are reaping major rewards. For instance, a leading automotive components supplier cap- tures its VSM data results in the Pelion Lean Operations solution, thus populating its production operating model. In addition to being “execution ready,” this system enables the company to electronically represent a single version of the truth to the various value stream stakeholders. In addition, this solution today has the data elements required to optimize Lean processes through load leveling, tying together various product “pull chains,” and performing key calculations such as supermarket sizing.
