Caught On Camera
Transportation Waste - Workers seen driving forklifts and walking around due to deficient plant layouts and poorly designed processes. Tim Wood moves raw material from one end of the plant to the other, intermediate parts from one building to the next, and finally the finished goods all the way back to the shipping and receiving area where the raw material originally came in.
Inventory Waste - Inventory seen piling up on shelves until more shelves are needed. No matter how many shelves are built, they never seem to be enough. All due to Tim Wood's poor process control and inventory management.
Motion Waste - Workers have to bend down or climb up on step ladders, to access parts or tools that Tim Wood stored inconveniently. Excessive inventory must be maneuvered around to make room for more inventory. Inefficient processes require lots of trips back and forth from one shelf or bench to another.
Waiting Waste - Workers or machinery wait idle for upstream processes to complete. Material shortages cause work in process to wait in staging areas, unable to be completed. Equipment shortages result in workers waiting idle for their turn on the forklift, so they can move even more inventory around the plant.
Overproduction Waste - Excessive batch sizing or purchase quantities cause already crowded inventory areas to overflow. Tim Wood's deadliest waste of overproduction can be seen causing a cascade of other wastes.
Overprocessing Waste - Workers spend a great deal time sorting through Tim Wood's stack of paperwork, but never seem to find what they need. Poorly organized staged parts are sorted and re-sorted by many different workers looking for the particular materials they need.
Defect Waste - Workers seen heading to the scrap bin with tubs full of rejected parts.
