Value stream mapping is a lean management method for analyzing and optimizing a series of events for production or services. Even today the first step in value stream analysis - the acquisition of the current state - is still created using pen & paper by physically visiting the production place. We capture a digital representation of how manufacturing processes look like in reality. The manufacturing processes can be represented and efficiently analyzed for future production planning by using a meta description together with a dependency graph. With our Value Stream Creator and explOrer (VASCO) we present a tool, which contributes to all parts of value stream analysis - from data acquisition, over planning, comparison with previous realities, up to simulation of future possible states.
