What is Lean Manufacturing?

Lean manufacturing is a concept that’s purpose is to eliminate waste while also maximizing productivity. Waste is anything that does not add value to the process including time. Lean production assists in reducing waste and increasing productivity.

How can Production Time Studies assist in Lean Manufacturing?

By identifying a manufacturing process and its steps, areas of waste are more easily identified. Production time studies help collect data on inventory, processing, transport, motion, and other factors that can be altered to reduce waste, allowing for better efficiency in production with the use of lean manufacturing tools.

What is 5S?

This is a lean methodology that uses five steps to organize the workplace in a more efficient way; sort, straighten, shine, standardize, and sustain. 5S is a simple yet effective way to create an organized, clean, and safe work environment, it is a foundation of Lean manufacturing as it helps in reducing waste, improving efficiency, and increasing productivity by eliminating the time wasted in looking for tools and equipment.

Sort: Remove unnecessary items from the work area and organize the remaining items in a logical and easy-to-find location.

Set in Order: Arrange items in a way that makes it easy to find and use them, and that promotes a smooth flow of work.

Shine: Clean the work area and equipment regularly to maintain a high level of hygiene and to identify any potential problems.

Standardize: Establish procedures and guidelines for maintaining the order and cleanliness of the work area, and for using equipment and tools.

Sustain: Continuously monitor the work area to ensure that it remains organized, clean, and safe, and make any necessary adjustments to maintain these conditions.

MUDA: Waste  -  MURA: Irregularity  -  MURI: Overburden

In Lean Manufacturing these Japanese concepts were pioneered by Toyota and top engineering experts to conduct such activities as production time studies, losses identification, value-added analyses, and non-value-added analyses.

Muda is the Japanese word for waste. In businesses, manufacturing, and production there are 8 types of waste:

  1. Transportation
  2. Inventory
  3. Motion
  4. Waiting
  5. Processing
  6. Overproduction
  7. Defects
  8. Underutilized Workers

Mura means unevenness or variation, referring to inconsistencies and inefficiencies that can lead to variations in production. 

Muri, or overburden, is putting too much strain on production, both people and machines.

It is important to identify Muda, Mura, and Muri in order to eliminate waste in business processes. Identifying the Mura (variation) and the Muri (overburden) works to eliminating Muda (waste), increasing efficiency and production.
