Waste exists at every level of the company and it affects people in a variety of ways. Overproduction is the mother of all wastes. It is by far the most common in most industries, and it has the ability to create all the seven other wastes. Less stuff in their way of the finish line really helps create that needed sense of urgency—not only to the external customer, but the immediate internal customer as well. The machines’ capabilities and cost are highly evaluated to ensure it can produce the product needed to generate sufficient revenue to pay off the machine’ and create sustainable profitability. With downtime being the moment of nonproduction, keeping the machine running creates another false impression of success or productivity. The perception was that production control was slow and it created animosity between the office and production.
