Lean Enterprise Institute Publishes 2nd Edition of Seeing the Whole Value Stream with New Examples of Supply Chain Analysis

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Lean Enterprise Institute (LEI), a nonprofit research, education, publishing, and conference company with a mission to advance lean thinking around the world, today announced publication of the second edition of its pioneering workbook Seeing the Whole Value Stream by lean management thought leaders James Womack and Daniel Jones.

“We describe how to do a detailed analysis of an extended value stream”

“We describe how to do a detailed analysis of an extended value stream,” Womack said. “We identify every step in the complex value-creating process. And then we ask some simple questions about every step: Is it capable? Is it available? Is it flexible? Is it adequate in terms of capacity? And then we ask how are the steps connected.”

Lean Thinking for Supply Chains

The second edition contains a completely new section with five essays plus value-stream maps explaining how companies are analyzing and improving lengthy supply chains by using extended value-stream mapping to collaborate with suppliers and customers.

The new essays explain:

  • How to spread value-stream thinking from manufacturers to final customers through a car dealer’s service department.
  • How Tesco is applying extended value-stream thinking to retail.
  • How Acme Alliance, a manufacturing job shop, used value-stream mapping collaboratively with suppliers and customers.
  • How to add realistic costs for connecting and managing activities along extended supply chains to understand the total cost of ownership.
  • How a global manufacturer can analyze all the value streams in a complex supply-chain network.

The book is available now for $50 at http://www.lean.org, click the Store tab. Complimentary value-stream maps from the book along with excerpts are available for download.

The 108-page second edition features multiple diagrams, charts, maps, and mapping icons for extended value streams.
