Pre-enrollment is accepted until the minimum student requirement is met. Once enough students have signed up, then we will reach out to process your payment.

However, if travel is a limitation for you and none of the states above will work, don't worry. We have several options.

Value Stream Mapping (VSM) is one of many ways students can visually summarize a process including its waste and opportunities for improvement. VSM is similar to Process Flow Charting but also communicates push processes, inventory, cycle times, etc.
Value Stream Mapping is an essential tool of Lean Manufacturing. "Value stream" refers to the fact that it's depicting the process by-which raw materials, information, etc. are altered and put together forming something for which customers are willing to pay. Along the way, any actions for which customers are not willing to pay are considered "waste" and highlighted on the "map". Wastes generally take the form of downtime, inventory, inspection, etc.; manifestations of the Seven Deadly Sins.
