Eliminating Waste Series – Over-processing

October 25, 2017


“A picture is worth a thousand words”. What do we mean when we talk about eliminating waste? These are real pictures taken during different process optimization projects that illustrate how we assist our customers’ factories to produce more efficiently.

Type of waste: over processing. Inspect and re-inspect. Count and re-count. If the processes are not streamlined, additional labor is paid and manufacturing lead-times extend. If this is a usual view of your factory, there are huge opportunities for improvement.
