No matter what the objective is, a logical relationship between the goal and how to reach it needs to be established. The term "Lean" is short for "Lean Production" or "Lean Manufacturing" and has, over time, become more commonly used than the original expression. Working with Lean is to step-by-step reach a vision, a future goal, where there is no waste. Waste means anything that doesn't add value to anybody or anything within the organization or project. Some of the most common categories of waste are:

  • Overproduction

  • Transport

  • Motion
  • Defects
