What are the seven wastes in manufacturing?

According to a production philosophy developed by the great minds at Toyota, there are 7 ways waste occurs during the manufacturing process.

Some of these concepts are particularly relevant to the physical waste produced by factories, but others are more aligned with efficiency.

The 7 ways include:

  • Overproduction – making too many products
  • Inventory – stock expires, or becomes damaged
  • Defects – product doesn’t meet customer or quality expectations
  • Motion – unnecessary resources used to move items, machines, or products
  • Over-processing – delivering only the necessary value to customers – not over-delivering in quality, size, or quantity
  • Waiting – any time wasted waiting for a machine or person to complete a task
  • Transportation – waste created during transporting of products – the shorter the distances the better

How can we eliminate manufacturing waste?

If you can reduce the amount your business throws away during the manufacturing process then not only will this save you money on bin collections, but you’ll also spend less on the raw materials in the first place as you’ll need to buy less to reach the same production levels.

Questions you should ask yourself are things like: are we producing too much? Can our storage be improved? Can we improve quality control? Can we deliver our products to our customers quicker?

Identifying how you can be more efficient as a manufacturer is very lucrative.
