There are 7 types of waste that can occur in daily business:

  • Overproduction – There are finished parts that are not used for the time being.
  • Stocks – Material or semi-finished products that are not currently needed for production.
  • Defects – When the quality of the work or the products is worse than the customer or the subsequent processes require it. 
(Examples: rework, scrap, missing part, wrong part)
  • Movement – Movements extend the work process. 
(Example: too long picking and walking paths)
  • Incorrect processes – Incorrect work processes in which the sequence of the individual process steps is not optimized lead to waste.
  • Waiting – Unused time if materials, machines or information are not available to the employee.
  • Transport – All movements of the material / sub-products that have no value-added activity.
