Simulation in Microsoft Visio
Dynamic use of the value stream simulation
Value Stream Mapping
Simulating your value streams with the Process Simulator is an ideal complement to Value Stream Mapping. Process Simulator has a special Shape-library for modeling value streams and specific functionalities to simulate value streams, without any overhead modeling. In particular, supermarket- and kanban systems for controlling the material flow can be modeled efficiently and graphically appealing..
By means of value stream design, the actual state of existing processes is displayed transparently. With the help of LEAN-principles, an optimized target value stream without waste is derived. Simulation quantifies the dynamic effect of stochastic factors, such as fluctuating demand, product variants with strongly deviating work contents or the influence of disturbances.
Using value stream simulation, you can increase added value, productivity and efficiency, while reducing variability, lead times, inventories and capital commitment.
