7 Wastes Workshop

Description

The objective of the 7 Waste workshop is to assist your business in identifying and eliminating unwanted waste, as this is one of the most effective ways to improve your business and increase productivity output.

To eliminate waste, it is important to understand exactly what waste is and where it exists. While originations significantly differ, the principles remain the same from, the typical wastes found in all organisations.

For each waste, there is a strategy to reduce or eliminate its effect on an organisation, thereby improving overall performance and quality.

Processes either add value or waste in ensuring services are delivered on time and within the proscribed manner.

The seven wastes originated in Japan, where waste is known as “muda.”

“The seven wastes” is a tool to further categorize “muda” and was originally developed by Toyota’s Chief Engineer Taiichi Ohno as the core of the Toyota Production System, also known as Lean Manufacturing.

The table below represents the 7 waste that are common in all organisations

  • Overproduction – Manufacture of products in advance or in excess of demand wastes money, time and space.
  • Waiting – Processes are ineffective and time is wasted when one process waits to begin while another finishes. Instead, the flow of operations should be smooth and continuous. According to some estimates, as much as 99 percent of a product’s time in manufacture is actually spent waiting.
  • Transportation – Moving a product between manufacturing processes adds no value, is expensive and can cause damage or product deterioration.
  • Inappropriate processing – Overly elaborate and expensive equipment is wasteful if simpler machinery would work as well.
  • Excessive inventory wastes resources through costs of storage and maintenance.
  • Unnecessary motion – Resources are wasted when workers have to bend, reach or walk distances to do their jobs. Workplace ergonomics assessment should be conducted to design a more efficient environment.
  • Defects – Inspecting and quarantining inventory takes time and costs money.

The workshop is conducted over 1 day and comprises of interactive discussion on the elements of the customer’s needs.
