Father of Toyota Manufacturing
What are the 7 ways of Taichi Ohno "Wastes"*
Waste from over production
Waste of waiting time
Processing waste and scraping
Waste of motion
Waste from product defects
Waste from over production *
Produce more than needed
Waste of waiting time *
Not waste from people waiting. It is from Work in Process waiting.
Moving the goods from one place to another. Warehouse to floor and then from floor to warehouse. Back and forth (unnecessary)
Takes up space, person needs to manage it, then move it around.
Processing waste and scraping *
Inventory that is unfixable and you are having to throw it away.
Waste of motion *
Unncessary motion by worker.
Waste from product defects *
Products you can fix, but it takes time away from other things, and money that is now being wasted.
What is Uniform plant loading *
Taking the number of products needed and producing them over the period of time before they are to be sold.
Card signal system: No computers in the past so this system made it so everyone knew what was going on and what was needed.
a focus on eliminating as much waste as possible

Value stream mapping
flowcharting tool. used to visualize product flows through various processing steps.
Group Technology (GT)
is a philosophy in which similar parts are grouped into families, and the processes required to make the parts are marranged in a manufacturing cell.
Quaility at the source
means do it right the first time and, when something goes wrong, stop the process or assembly line immediately.
producing what is needed when needed and no more.
is one that requires material to be pulled into final assembly in a pattern uniform enough to allow the various elements of produciotn to respond to pull signals.
is used where the parts that go into each unit of the product are periodically removed from inventory and accounted for based on the number of units produced
