Abstract

Inadequate internal communication and insufficient information transfer is
already recognized as a non-value-adding waste. To achieve a higher value creation,
an identification and categorization of information transfer is necessary. Common
methods are unsuitable especially for visualizing information media disruptions and
lead to errors in the added value. Moreover, media disruptions mostly cause
redundancy and additional effort, which are reflected in non-value added activities.
The Value Added Heat Map is a visualization tool that categorizes and visualize the
information flow different from other visualization tools e.g. the value stream
analysis. The first step in categorizing the information flow using the Value Added
Heat Map is the value analysis of the information transmission. In a second step, the
information flow is visualized in the factory layout depending on the value. The
innovative method Value Added Heat Map is described and exemplarily applied to an
information flow of a production shop floor. The results show that the Value Added
Heat Map method can contribute to a better transparency of the often not fully
documented internal information flows. This innovative approach enables the
visualization of media disruptions via colour transitions and thus helps value added
processes by identifying and eliminating possible sources of waste.


Key words: Value Added Heat Map, Value of an Information, Value Added Concentration, Information Flow, Digitalization, Digitalization Degree, Media disruptions
