Eight Deadly Wastes

Can your company benefit from Lean? Here are the Eight Deadly Wastes. Do any of them apply to your business?

  • Overproduction - Making what is unnecessary, when it is unnecessary; and in unnecessary amounts.
  • Inventory - Goods retained for any length of time, inside or outside the factory.
  • Transportation - Any transfer of materials, parts, assembly parts or finished goods, from one place to another for any reason.
  • Defects - The defects themselves, as well as costs of inspecting for defects, responding to customer complaints and making repairs.
  • Processing Waste - Operations and processes that may not be necessary.
  • Motion Waste - Movement that is not really needed to perform an operation.
  • Waiting - Ideal time: human and/or machine waiting.
  • Under-Utilized People - Not using the creative and problem-solving ability of people.
