Webinar Instructor: Bob Deysher – Senior Consultant, Quality Systems/Risk Management/Auditing
In the early 1950s, Eiji Toyoda and Taichi Ohno of the Toyota Motor Corporation visited the Ford River Rouge Complex in Dearborn, Michigan. They subsequently defined three different types of waste – Muda (waste), Mura (unevenness), and Muri (overburden) – that impact the flow of products and services and upon their return to Japan waste elimination became a key focus of the Toyota Production System (TPS).
The objectives of this Webinar are to uncover:
• How the three wastes (Muda, Mura, and Muri) influence each other.
• Where the 7 Wastes (TIMWOOD) fit in the Toyota definition of waste.
• How waste reduction (Mura) can generate new wastes (Mura & Mira)
• Examples of different wastes and their potential impact on your operational and administrative processes
