Clicking through Lean

An aspect of the Lean process improvement that is reinforced often in our training sessions is to learn to identify and eliminate "the 7 wastes" that are found in production and service organizations. Here is a handy pen that clicks through the forms of waste to help you remember them: defects, waiting, motion, inventory, processing, transportation, and overproduction. Thanks to Greater Boston Manufacturing Partnership for the memory tool.
