My take on the 7 Deadly wastes:

  • Transportation: Where the value of the product does not change, only it's location.
  • Inventory: Like a ticking time bomb taking up space waiting to become obsolete.
  • Movement: Efficiently transforming energy into wasted time.
  • Waiting Making valuable time disappear into thin air.
  •  Over production Prime real estate being consumed by Inventory in waiting. 
  • Over processing: The art of introducing cost that will never be seen, used, appreciated or paid for.
  • Defects: A full house of wasted Labour, Materials, Energy, Time, Space and overheads, with the added potential to annoy customers.
