LEAN FORUM – 5 May 2015

Topic: The 8 Wastes


Waste is any step or resource allocation that delivers zero value for your customer. An easy way to remember the 8 types of waste is using the acronym TIM WOODS.

In this Lean Forum we will discover how to identify waste in your business. Learn about the waste of Transport, Inventory, Motion, Waiting, Over Production, Over Processing, Defects and Skills. And understand the discipline required to sustain a “waste free culture” in your business. Reducing waste in your process is an effective way to increase profitability. Register for the next Lean Forum to learn more with TLC!
