  • 6. The 7 Wastes of Lean
    • Over production
      • Producing more material than is needed before it is needed is the fundamental waste in lean manufacturing--Material stops flowing.
    • Producing defective products
      • Defective products impede flow and lead to wasteful handling, time, and effort.
    • Inventories
      • Material sits taking up space, costing money, and potentially being damaged. Problems are not visible.
    • Motion
      • Any motion that does not add value to the product is waste.
    • Processing
      • Extra processing not essential to value-added from the customer point of view is waste.
    • Transportation
      • Moving material does not enhance the value of the product to the customer.
    • Waiting
      • Material waiting is not material flowing through value-added operations.
  • 7. The Five Ss of Lean

      • Sort needed and unneeded items.
    • Set in order
      • Put things in proper place and arrange.
