Abstract

Proceedings of the 2011 International Conference on Industrial Engineering and Operations Management Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, January 22 ? 24, 2011,Value Stream Mapping (VSM) is a World Class Manufacturing tool that can be used to minimise waste in manufacturing. Companies are experiencing intense competitive pressure due to globalisation hence they cannot afford to operate with waste in their processes. This paper details the use of the VSM tool in reducing waste in bread manufacturing for a company in Zimbabwe. The case study shows how the VSM tool was used to identify and reduce defects by 20%, unnecessary inventory by 18% and motion by 37%. It incorporates waste relationship ranking and the importance of management commitment in waste reduction.
