Product Description

The Chemical Manufacturer Value Streams comprise all the major value streams typical in a chemical company. The Chemical Manufacturer Value Streams are an essential and integral part of business architecture, and instead of starting from scratch, our pre-built deliverable jumpstarts the process, accelerating time to value. However, as each company has unique processes – with dozens of variations – our deliverable is a springboard, not a fully baked, customized consulting deliverable.

(As the Chemical Manufacturer Value Streams is a digital deliverable, we do not accept returns or issue refunds. Please read the product description carefully before purchasing.)

Chemical Manufacturer Value Streams Deliverable:

  • A set of 50 value streams detailed the primary and supporting activities of the value chain. The value streams are decomposed into one step of high-level detail.
  • Bonus: A Guide to Value Streams.

Enterprise and Business Architects can use the Chemical Manufacturer value streams as a straw model and customize them to the needs of their enterprise.

(Note: While we reference business capabilities, journey maps, and process maps, please realize that this product pertains to only the value streams. We offer other products which span business capabilities. Furthermore, the value streams are in simple PowerPoint format and are editable.)

Chemical Manufacturer Value Streams:

In business architecture, Value Streams are a series of activities that deliver a product or service to a customer, generating value. They offer a comprehensive, end-to-end perspective of work processes, beginning with the initial customer interaction and ending with the final product or service delivery. This high-level view elucidates how an organization realizes its strategic objectives and meets customer needs.

Business Capabilities and Value Streams operate as the Yin and Yang of business architecture. Business Capabilities define what an organization is capable of doing, representing the skills, technologies, and resources needed to execute its strategy. Conversely, Value Streams depict how these capabilities are orchestrated to create customer value. In essence, while Business Capabilities represent potential, Value Streams transform this potential into action. Together, they provide a holistic understanding of an organization, enabling strategic decision-making and aligning business operations with strategic goals.

In the context of a Chemical Manufacturing firm, Value Streams are indispensable. Such firms typically grapple with intricate, interconnected processes involving multiple departments and stakeholders. By providing a clear and comprehensive understanding of these processes, Value Streams allow the firm to identify inefficiencies, bottlenecks, or gaps. Ensuring that every activity contributes to the value delivered to the end customer helps reduce waste and increase productivity.

Chemical companies can harness Value Streams in numerous ways. In product development, Value Stream Mapping can spotlight areas of improvement to reduce time-to-market. It can also help uncover non-value-adding activities in the manufacturing process, such as unnecessary movement of chemicals or excessive waiting times for approvals. In the realm of supply chain management, Value Stream Mapping can facilitate lead time reduction, improve logistics efficiency, and minimize inventory costs. Value Streams can help streamline processes, improving the speed and quality of responses to customer complaints or queries.

Furthermore, Value Streams form a robust foundation for documenting detailed process maps and customer journey maps. Process maps offer a granular view of individual operations, ensuring that all activities align with the Value Stream. This alignment aids in avoiding process inefficiencies or communication mishaps between departments. Similarly, customer journey maps, which chronicle a customer’s interactions with the organization, can be aligned with Value Streams. This alignment ensures that each customer touchpoint adds value, enhancing the overall customer experience. Therefore, Value Streams are invaluable, enabling organizations to efficiently and effectively deliver value.

The Value Streams are a result of several consulting engagements at reputed enterprises. While they are practical and based on real-life scenarios, each organization is different with divergent processes, and hence you will need to customize them to your company’s unique needs.

How to Use Value Streams Deliverables:

  • We strive to provide a generic and representative straw model Value Streams typical to an industry. However, as each firm differs, the specific steps in a value stream may vary – sometimes marginally and sometimes substantially. Business architects and process experts must use the deliverable as a springboard and customize it to each company’s unique needs.
  • After tailoring the value streams to reflect the internal reality of your business flows, business architects can leverage the value streams to cross-map with business capabilities, detailed process maps, customer journey maps, and other artifacts to glean insight and understand the footprint and relationships between these entities.
  • The value streams can be a basis for detailing the processes with additional information (actors, actions, data, systems, etc.) and crafting customer journey maps.
