eVSM Applications

 Quick Manufacturing

Plant level value stream mapping for discrete parts and assemblies that allows calculation of takt time, lead time, and capacities. This video shows a step by step tutorial on using the Quick Manufacturing stencil.

 Quick Processing

Plant level value stream mapping of chemicals and food processes that allows calculation of takt time, lead time, and capacities. This video shows a step by step tutorial on using the Quick Processing stencil.

 Quick Enterprise

Enterprise level value stream mapping. This video shows a step by step tutorial on using the Quick Enterprise stencil.

Plant Milk Run

Plan one or more milk run routes to provide materials replenishment at workstations at fixed time intervals. It estimates the route time. You can then add or remove stops, change the route geometry, and couple/decouple loading and unloading operations.

 Mfg Multi Station Wizard

This wizard calculates the properties of an equivalent machine that has the same capacity as multiple machines with differing properties. Designed for use with the Quick Manufacturing stencil.

 Processing Multi Station Wizard

This wizard calculates the properties of an equivalent machine that has the same capacity as multiple machines with differing properties. Designed for use with the Quick Processing stencil.


eVSM Tips

 Visualizing Data

 
  • Gadget collections provide geometric views of key numbers
  • Plotting values of all variables in a bar chart

 Source and Target

 
  • Connect data on the same map or separate maps
  • Link between wizard side calculations and main map
  • Create high level maps with detailed drill down pages

 Sequence Module

 
  • Create sequence arrows for upstream and downstream calculations
  • Auto Path functionality
  • Filtering summary center by path

 Managing Data Values

 
  • Data values can sometimes have a range, be approximate, or somehow derived
  • View different methods of managing data values on the map

 Quick Draw

 
  • Capture the flow with no data
  • Use base eVSM shapes
  • Learn tips to start your first map

 Shape Families

 
  • Right-mouse menu to access dozens of similar shapes
  • Stacks include complete set of

 Copying Multiple Centers

 
  • Quickly replicate groups of shapes using Visio CTRL + drag
  • Useful when units have been modified

 Page Resizing

 
  • Visio tip for increasing or decreasing the drawing page
  • Do not resize shapes, just adjust the page size
  • Resize from any edge

 Choose Your Units

 
  • Switch between compatible units
