What is waste in a production line?

Waste in a production line implies a variety of factors that are everything that does not add value and for which the customer is not willing to pay.

 

There are 6 types of waste to mention a few:

-Overproduction: Produce materials before the consumer requires it, which causes the parts to be stored and the inventory increased, as well as the cost of maintaining it.

-Wait: At the time of beginning work on the production line, the operator must have the raw material or what is required. Since it can generate wasted time and encourage the subsequent process.

-Unnecessary transport: The unnecessary movement of some parts during production is a waste. This can cause damage to the product or part, which creates a rework.

-Overprocessing or incorrect processing: Not having clear customer requirements causes unnecessary processes to be produced, which add costs instead of value to the product.

-Inventories: Excess raw material, inventory in process or finished products cause long delivery times, obsolescence of products, damaged products, cost of transportation. Storage and delays.

-Defective or rework products: Production of defective parts. Repairs or rework, scrap, replacements in production and inspection mean wasted handling, time and effort.
