Value stream mapping is a lean tool which is used in lean manufacturing to find the flow of information and material, as a product it makes way through value stream. These envision tool helps to understand processes by using of stream lined work process. In these paper value stream maps of a process by using simulation is developed. By creating dynamic value stream maps makes it possible to analyze and optimize more complex systems than traditional VSM. Simulation can be used with value stream mapping to give it power and flexibility in order to dynamically change the state of the system. The study is conducted in milk processing plant, in particular a company who manufacture dairy based products. The aim is to identify extent of waste and how these can be reduced and/or eliminated from the value stream and consequently promoting Green Manufacturing. The benefits are visualized with the help of simulation which can reap long term yield for the manufacturers.
