A physical simulation based activity in the form of a board game has been developed to explain the concepts of Value Stream Mapping (VSM) and analysis. The activity explains the basic concepts of Value Stream Mapping, drawing of the Current state map, development of Future state map, and implementation of the future state. Simulation activity is run in three phases and the results of implementing various lean tools are observed. Effects of various tools like the Supermarket, Kanban, and Pull system are observed in a learn-by-doing environment. This simulation activity can be used to compliment training programs in Lean manufacturing.
