Eliminating Waste Series – Direct Labor

“A picture is worth a thousand words”. What do we mean when we talk about eliminating waste? These are real pictures taken during different process optimization projects that illustrate how we assist our customers’ factories to produce more efficiently.

Type of waste: direct labor (workers sitting idle). The reasons can be varied: unbalanced lines, quality issues, materials unavailability, machines breakdown, just to name a few. If this is a usual view of your factory, there are huge opportunities for improvement.
