Lean Manufacturing (LM) is a philosophy to eliminate waste in the production. The seven types of wastes that revealed by this philosophy are overproduction, waiting, transporting, inappropriate processing, unnecessary inventory, unnecessary motion and defect on the product. Value Stream Mapping (VSM) is a tool of lean manufacturing where it helps to understand the streamline work processes. Value Stream Mapping also able to identify the sources of wastes and suggest on how to eliminate it. The purpose of this study is to investigate the application of Value Stream Mapping at the factory which declares implement the VSM in their business. A manufacturing company based on car carpet manufacturing was selected as the venue of material gathering for this study. Interview, observation and site visit are the method that was conducted to gain the sufficient information. The finding of this study shows that the implementation of VSM was upgraded the manufacturing performance.
