    Hello,
    I would be interested to know your definition of a ‘key process’
    (our management wants a VSM for all our key processes)
    A) Would you call a key process a process that makes products that are physically present in most the products manufactured by a factory.
    B) Would you call a key process a process that requires a lot of practice and experience and that would be very difficult to externalize.
    C) Both A and B ?
     Thanks
    Vincent

    I would suggest you VSM by product families.  You define these by combining those products that use the same resources for approximately the same amount of time (per unit).  Create a separate current state map for each family.  Now you can prioritize these based on a customer valuation model (or other such tool).  and within each VSM, you can map and prioritize your Key Processes based on an OEE concept.   Just one idea.   
    Good luck.

    to your query.. It’s A
    always remember…
    VSM is for selected process, where maximum products flows
