It’s a value stream mapping tool called eVSM, which is basically a data-rich flow chart.
I have been talking a little about new enhancements to the calculation engine in eVSM. One very exciting development…delmiaquest.blogspot.com
Here’s a blog post I wrote about it, because most of our users aren’t at a point of being able to use it, so I put this out there for anyone searching, rather than make real documentation.
Audience is tough; this was the simplest way we could think of for specifying the variation, and for evaluating the output. Since we’ve got basically a flowchart, our users don’t necessarily realize they’re giving us a directed graph. On top of that, our calculations are built-in, and use a grammar for referring to different points in the graph relative to a specific node.
