    8 wastes presentation

    One of Taiichi Ohno’s “Ten Precepts” to think and act to win is: “Waste is hidden. Do not hide it. Make problems visible”.  Ohno is the father of the Toyota Production System that is widely used around the world. A major part of that system is dealing with waste: anything that the customer is not paying for.  We must find it and then keep minimizing it until it is eliminated.

    This interactive presentation (Do not come expecting to just eat, sit, and listen!) will present the 8 Deadly Lean Wastes and then the attendees, formed into teams, will proceed to identify specific wastes in their companies. Each attendee will be able to bring a list back to work noting the wastes AND some ideas from fellow attendees about approaching elimination of these wastes. Always remember and never forget, waste is not just on the factory floor – it’s all around you!
