What Are the 8 Wastes?

Waste is any step or action in a process that is not required to complete a process (called “Non Value-Adding”) successfully. When Waste is removed, only the steps that are required (called “Value-Adding”) to deliver a satisfactory product or service to the customer remain in the process. The 8 Wastes of Lean are Defects, Overproduction, Waiting, Non-Utilized Talent, Transportation, Inventory, Motion, and Extra-Processing.

The '8 Wastes Training' was excellent. Clear and easy to understand.

by Doug Fantauzzi on 8 Wastes Training & Certificate

I enjoy a short course such as this because the focus is only on this topic instead of a having multiple topics to focus on. It is also a great way to learn about specific topics without having to spring for a bigger course.
