1Transportation WasteDefinition: the unnecessary act of taking or carrying someone or something from one place to anotherOffice example: Movement of paperwork; multiple hand-offs of e-data, unnecessary approvals, excessive attachments, or cc-ing people who don't really need to know.CU Store example: transporting items from warehouse to store to warehouse and/or back to another CU store.
2Definition: Excess or unnecessary inventory. Inventory WasteDefinition: Excess or unnecessary inventory.Office example: Purchasing or making things before they are needed: office supplies, items in an in-box, unread , and all forms of batch processing.ODFS example: inventory in multiple locations causes confusion about what we have, and so we often order unnecessary items.
3Motion WasteDefinition: Extra or unnecessary physical motion to perform a task or process.Office example: Walking to a copier, printer, or other machine; walking between offices; using central filing; or adding attachments to an or cc-ing people who don't really need to know.
4People WasteDefinition: Not fully engaging (or misplacing) the talent of a team memberOffice example: A person has knowledge of a software program, but others don’t know about or tap into that knowledge.
5Definition: Any unnecessary waits or delays in a process. Waiting (delay) WasteDefinition: Any unnecessary waits or delays in a process.Office example: Slow computers, downtime (computer, fax, phone), waiting for approvals, waiting for customer information, or waiting for clarification on (or correction of) work from earlier in the process.
6Over-processing Waste Definition: doing extra steps: i.e., doing more work than is necessary.Office example: Inspections (instead of eliminating errors), re-entering data into multiple information systems, making extra copies, generating unused reports, and unnecessarily-cumbersome processes.CU example: Group A scanned documents that a group B needed, too, but group A didn’t want to share the scanned version of the document, causing group B to have to redo the work.
7Overproduction WasteDefinition: doing more work than is necessary or work that was not requested.Office example: Printing paperwork or processing an order before it is needed: things can change, causing the work to have to be re-done. Any processing that is done on a routine schedule without considering current demand
8Defect WasteDefinition: Rework or repairs to correct mistakes: corrections take time and cause frustration.Office example: Data entry errors, invoice errors, engineering change orders, design flaws, employee turnover, and miscommunication.
