  3. 3. INTRODUCTION Opportunity for improvement comes from an ability to see, our “Kaizen Eyes”. If we can better our “Kaizen Eyes,” we will see more and greater chances to improve. One of the ways to do this is to betterunderstand Muda, Mura, and Muri and to then look for them in our processes. Many of us are familiar with Muda, or waste, but less familiar with the others. We need to know them all so we do not create one in relieving the other, and to expand our ability to see.This slide set will review the 3‘M’s and discuss how we can use looking for them to improve our “Kaizen
  4. 4. “KAIZEN EYES” =Ability to See Opportunities for Improvement
  5. 5. Improving OUR “Kaizen Eyes”Requires us to beObserving Processes and Activities.
  6. 6. Observing takes... time effort patience practice humility
  7. 7. TIPS FOR OBSERVING Gain Understanding of the ProcessTest Positions and Locations for Observing Record Observations & Questions Do not Assume, Ask Do not be in a Rush-Grow Roots
  8. 8. The 3 M’s Muda, Mura, & Muri
  9. 9. The 3 M’s definedWaste = MudaUneven = Mura Strain = Muri
  10. 10. MUDA LOOKS LIKE:Excess Defective Unneeded Bad Parts Extra Breakdowns Inefficiency Error Wrong
  11. 11. MURA LOOKS LIKE:Bumpy Un-level Stop & Start Peak & Valley Unequal Up & Down Lumpy Spiky
  12. 12. MURI LOOKS LIKE: Unrealistic Tasks or RequirementsPain Overloading Poor Design Poor ErgonomicsUnnatural Movements
  13. 13. Seeing The 3 M’s to help OUR “Kaizen Eyes”
  14. 14. HOW SEEING THE 3 M’S HELPS OUR “KAIZEN EYES” Improves pattern recognition of issues Provides lens to observe processes through Gives routine for practicing our skills of observation Fosters a language to communicate opportunities Develops a Holistic way to think about processes Prevents trade-offs between the ill effects of the 3 M’s
