Value Stream Mapping

When faced with a significant change to their market, DAKA Corporation needed to pivot and take on a new product line.

To help them adapt, Enterprise Minnesota experts led the team at DAKA through a value stream mapping project to fully define their processes.

By better understanding their production capabilities and processes from call to cash, DAKA was prepared to take on new equipment and expand the business.

Read about how Enterprise Minnesota helped DAKA Corp. reach their goals.

Enterprise Minnesota’s experts really helped us coordinate our value stream mapping process, which was a team effort across the company. Everyone was involved in it, and it gave everyone a chance to provide input. After the value stream map, my employees seem to be more engaged and happier. It has opened their eyes to move past “this is how we’ve always done it,” and that change can be a positive thing. When we implemented our plant layout, we were able to handle the increased volume without any expansion and it really increased our efficiencies.
