About the Download

Waste is a concept highly discussed along with Lean Production. Waste is anything that doesn’t add value to the end product. There are eight categories of waste that you should monitor (Mindtools.com):

  • Overproduction– Are you producing more than consumers demand?
  • Waiting– How much lag time is there between production steps?
  • Inventory(work in progress) – Are your supply levels and work in progress inventories too high?
  • Transportation– Do you move materials efficiently?
  • Over-processing– Do you work on the product too many times, or otherwise work inefficiently?
  • Motion– Do people and equipment move between tasks efficiently?
  • Defects– How much time do you spend finding and fixing production mistakes?
  • Workforce– Do you use workers efficiently?
