Abstract: Nowadays automobile industry, as manufacturers structure and construct vehicles all-inclusive, their supply chains become progressively perplexing with difficulties in the method of profitability and investor worth value such as excess inventory over the production network and absence of permeability of providers. So as to expand the aggressiveness of the automotive industry with store network, here lean administration idea is incorporated as lean supply chain management (LSCM).The Lean supply chain is utilized to streamline the business forms by wiping out waste and non-value added activities. The association between lean and SCM is one of the techniques for expense and time decrease to improve the viability. The lean supply chain is likewise centered around advancing the procedure of all production network and scanning for rearrangements. This research paper is proposed a lean supply chain management-value stream mapping (LSCM-VSM) is utilized to dispense with waste and improved operational methodology and efficiency. It is a procedure of envisioning mapping stream of information and producing the future-state map with better strategies and execution. The exploratory outcomes demonstrate the production lead time (PLT) by executing the proposed LVSM and future more assesses the total cycle time (TCT) and value-added ratio(VA%) of a value stream.

Keywords: Supply Chain, Lean Supply Chain, Value Stream Mapping, Production Lead Time, Current State Map, Future State Map.
