E.g. : You break your leg, you go to a Hospital. You spend 2 hours in the waiting room until a doctor examines you for 5 minutes to tell you ‘son, your leg is broken!’. Then someone put you a plaster, which it lasts 25 minutes. On 2 hours and 30 minutes, only 30 minutes added value from your patient perspective. If this hospital intends to be lean, it would try to identify and eliminate all the wastes to reduce those 2 hours that added no value to you, the customer.
