The TIMWOODS Kaizen / Continuous improvement board identifies the Eight Wastes and sets up clear countermeasures. Each of the Eight Wastes (Transportation, Inventory, Motion, Waiting, Over production, Over processing, Defects and Skills (underutilization) are referred to by the acronym ‘TIMWOODS’. These wastes represent non-value-added activities in a process or system and are targeted for elimination or reduction to improve efficiency and productivity. In order to identify and deal with wastes, a simple yet effective visual management board is vital
This specially designed TIMWOODS – The Eight Wastes Kaizen Board, helps you to:
- identify your hidden wastes
- convey hidden wastes to the employees and create awareness,
- develop countermeasures to reduce/eliminate wastes,
- assign responsibility and track the project status.
Each lean area has room for 3 identified wastes and the opportunity to create countermeasures with a designated owner, review date and current status.
Waste is undesirable for industry and should be eliminated but it can be quite challenging to eliminate all the wastes completely. There is a need to find an optimum solution to help eliminate them. As a first step, it is essential to identify the wastes. Lean categorizes waste into 8 types and suggests ways to deal with them logically. The TIMWOODS board not just helps you identify your hidden wastes but also helps you to develop countermeausres for the different types of wastes, assign responsibility and track the status.
The board is designed in such a way as to grab the attention of the shop floor and get staff interested and eager to learn more! Custom designs are also available through Customer Services.
