Difference to other process mappings
Most process mapping techniques do not have a structural approach to detect the real losses and design a future state process based on loss-elimination.
Typically it stays with the current state, where the low hanging fruit is picked away.
Compared to a Value Stream Map, the makigami can also handle non-visible flows and value creations.
The Next levels

The future state, where value addition to the customer is leading, now should be integrated in an organization that systematically approaches this value creation.

1. The process and the system performing it should be structurally 100% correct and operating full-proof. This is where the PSD is being used.

2. The full-proof process is to be embedded in the organization that performs a multitude of processes. Persons are part of the system, the organization is part of a larger system. This all has to be integrated seamlessly.
