Creating a lean office or manufacturing facility can be overwhelming if proper training is not provided for all employees from production workers to top office staff.

The 8 Wastes of Lean are defined on the poster as: Defects, Waiting Time, Extra Motion, Excess Inventory, Over Production, Extra Processing, Unnecessary Transportation, and Unutilized Talents. The 22” x 28” size with high resolution printing brings visual attention to the poster. The posters can also be placed in outdoor scenarios for those work environments such as junk yards or shipping yards. UV lamination and plastic poster hangers for added protection from outdoor environments will keep the poster looking like new.
Lean manufacturing can be considered as a business model and collection of tactical methods that emphasize eliminating non-value added activities (waste) while delivering quality products on time and for less cost with greater efficiency. A good business strategy for becoming successful and creating a competitive advantage is as simple as implementing a lean program. The 8 Wastes of Lean Poster keeps the employees focus on minimizing waste and empowers employees to better themselves and their workspace.
