What is LEAN?

What is LEAN you ask?

I’ll admit it can be a bit complicated & overwhelming at times, So I will give you my Simple interpretation of it:

LEAN is the method for eliminating WASTE.

WASTE (has nothing to do with garbage, well, it could….) is any step in a process that is not required to complete that task

To eliminate the WASTE and become LEAN will therefore make you more efficient. It is all about doing more, with less. Simply put, it is fixing what bugs you!

These are the basic 8 types of WASTE:
Defects
Overproduction
Waiting
Non-utilized talent
Transportation
Inventory
Motion
Extra-processing

DOWNTIME
