About this event

In this training you will learn how to use a waste walk to improve safety, operational excellence, and drive continuous improvement in your organization. We will review the elements of a waste walk, what to look for, examples, potential causes, and potential opportunities for improvement. I will also take it one step further with a more advanced waste walk and give you tips and tools to document and measure the findings in order to quantify not only the impact of the waste but to also quantify and show the impact of the improvements once they are made.

The training will cover:

- What is process waste

- An introduction to 2 additional types of wastes to include in the waste walk

- An overview of more than 10 types of process waste

- Identification, Potential Causes, and Mitigation of process waste

- How to conduct a waste walk

- Tips on how to set up a waste walk in your facility

- New acronyms for remembering the wastes

- A worksheet to help you remember what we talked about
