Ergonomic Value Stream Mapping (ErgoVSM)

Tool and User Guide


Publish date
ErgoVSM is an intervention process tool stimulating a dialogue for creating more sustainable value streams at hospital wards. It represents a complement to traditional Value Stream Mapping. Work environment issues are integrated in the Lean-management method Value Stream Mapping. The focus is to describe the current state through dialogue and visualisation followed by designing a future state and developing an action plan. During this process, performance, physical ergonomics and work content are considered.
