🎉 JointJS has new documentation! 🥳

JointJS+ vsm

shapes.vsm

The VSM plugin provides you with a set of Value Stream Mapping shapes. The VSM plugin is an independent module, and needs to be installed as an addition to the main JointJS+ package.

VSM Demo source code

Installation

Place the VSM plugin installable package in your project. The following package.json example places the package in the root of the project. Next, run npm install to install the dependency.

{
    "dependencies": {
        "@joint/shapes-vsm": "file:joint-vsm-shapes.tgz", // path to file
    }
}

Usage

import * as VSMShapes from '@joint/shapes-vsm';
import { dia, shapes as defaultShapes } from 'jointjs';

const shapes = { ...VSMShapes, ...defaultShapes };

const graph = new dia.Graph({}, { cellNamespace: shapes });

const paper = new dia.Paper({
    model: graph,
    el: document.getElementById('app') as HTMLDivElement,
    width: 300,
    height: 300,
    cellViewNamespace: shapes
});

graph.fromJSON({ cells: [
    { type: "VSMTruck" },
    { type: "standard.Rectangle", size: { width: 100, height: 20 }, position: { x: 10, y: 120 } }
]});

The type attribute of each vsm shape is prefixed with VSM, so remember to include this when creating an instance.

const truck = new VSMTruck();
truck.addTo(graph);

const operator = new VSMOperator();
operator.addTo(graph);
shapes.vsm.CustomerSupplier

The CustomerSupplier shape can represent both the customer or the supplier depending on its placement in a value stream map. The input for the value stream is the supplier, and the endpoint of the value stream is the customer.

The supplier is denoted if the shape is placed at the upper-left of the diagram, and upper-right placement denotes the customer.
