This paper describes two ways of mapping engineering processes in product development — Value Stream Mapping (VSM) and a simplified variant of VSM — which are compared with Process Mapping (PM). PM is closely related to VSM but applied differently although the goal—to identify possible process improvements—is often the same. The results of the study indicate that simplified ways of doing VSM are the most feasible. They are easier to get started with, they have a higher potential for improvement of the process and one gets an instant overview of the mapped process. Further, it is more likely that the improvement will be implemented when the users are committed through their involvement in the mapping process.

Nyckelord: VSM, process, mapping, lean
