STARTING WITH FLOW CONCEPTS - VALUE STREAM MAP (VSM)

Value stream maps are prepared to picture concepts and serve as guides for planning.  The next diagram pictured represents the flow of materials from suppliers to manufacturing, then product from manufacturing to a construction site.

The general flow of materials is pictured here as anticipated for the start of operations. As the process matures, the stockpiles will be addressed. 

The chart follows the idea that a pair of technicians will form a team that will fabricate the components in the shop, then travel to the site and install them. This process is anticipated while training new technicians and could change if fabrication becomes backlogged. 

The process is a work in progress and the VSM will be updated to illustrate the current view.
