A Nov. 16 workshop will teach manufacturers how to serve their customers better.

Mississippi State University’s Value Stream Mapping workshop is a one-day course that will teach manufacturers how to make their work flow more efficiently and eliminate unnecessary steps by mapping their work processes.

The 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. workshop will be held in the Renasant Center in Tupelo. The $40 registration fee covers lunch and materials.

MSU’s Franklin Furniture Institute experts will teach the mapping concept, first used by Toyota.

"The process involves mapping a product’s production path throughout from order in to product out," said Bill Martin, institute director. "Value stream mapping can be the foundation for companies moving toward lean manufacturing systems."
