A demand-actuated supply within the agreed time has become more challenging due to the growing number of variations and the associated increase of parts and suppliers. The logistical process of the material flow has become extremely difficult. The consequences find themselves within an increasing complexity and diminished transparency of logistics systems in the product supply. Nevertheless, logistics cache significant rationalization capabilities within or across companies. For this purpose it is important to frame a methodology that enables a transparent, clear, holistic visualization and a reduction of production supply to the essentials. For the visualization of the material flow from the supplier to the assembly location, a logistical value stream map will be developed to illustrate the complexity of different material provision principles.
