Many enterprises in Chinese Mainland have deployed lean production in consideration of its great success in
other countries, but many of them failed to realize their original targets because they began to deploy lean
production from tool level and haven’t understood the actual value stream of their business, which is essential for
an enterprise to implement lean production and keep improving. The paper proposes a value stream mapping
based lean production system for Chinese enterprises to help them deploy lean production systematically, which
can make them have a overall look at total efficiency, tell them where they are, where they want to go and map a
route to get there. We hope the paper will help them eliminate roots of wastes, rearrange overall value stream
better and increase the competitive ability of Chinese enterprises.
