Our paper wishes to present a strategy used to create an image about the informational and material flows of products and services. Value Stream Mapping is not a project that covers a specific period of time; instead it is a working methodology to differentiate activities that add value compared with the non-value added, and is addressing to all employees, to the management, suppliers and customers. Many companies are using this improving method because it identifies the problems from the production process, analyze them and provide some potential solutions for a better process.
