Inventory has value on the balance sheet of the company but having inventory more does not add value to your customers. A customer will not pay you more for your product if you have more goods, and they will not pay you less if you are able to meet the expectations of what they are bringing with a small inventory. While inventory will often be needed (e.g., as a refuge for compliance with different customer needs), it should always be treated as waste and minimized. Read more on inventory reduction
2. Waiting time:
A waiting period is idle time spent by employees waiting for something to happen. Usually, they will be waiting for another task to complete the task or waiting for the machine to complete its cycle. While waiting, the employee does not add value to the product, so waiting is a waste.
In most jobs, employees will spend most of their time traveling. Going from one part of the production line to the other, going back to collect or deliver building materials, or walking around work cells. When you leave, employees do not charge value to customers, so the move is wasteful.
The closest thing to movement is travel time. This is a time spent moving goods and products around the plant or from place to place – a necessity if you have a large site or a wide variety of operations, but it does not increase the value of the product and therefore is wasted.
Ask the majority of waste workers and they will talk about dumping or disability. Corruption and degradation do not add value to consumer products and should obviously be treated as waste.
6. Excessive processing:
Production processes often involve processes that do not add value to a product, and we should view those processes as waste and try to eliminate them completely. Examples of this type of debris include excessive testing measures, continuous installation or subassemblies that need to be removed later in the process, and finishing parts (where the excavation or cutting process caused the burr to be rearranged to prevent the original burr).
Overproduction is just the opposite of time. Overproduction produces more of what is needed sooner than necessary. Overproduction often manifests itself as continuous job creation. Overproduction is often the result of large clusters and unequal processes and is somehow the worst type of waste as it is associated with increased inventory, bulk transportation, and is often overused.
Identifying wasteful activities is something that should start at the top of the company. Often, high-level management has a broader view of all processes. In this way of thinking, we can say that they manage a portfolio of different activities, functional areas, and projects, and it is their responsibility to create processes and spread a culture of sustainable development.

- Regularly Spend Time on the Shop Floor (Gemba walk) & increase ProfitThis is not just going for a walk (Gemba or Gemba walk) and a chat “once in a blue moon.” Value is created on the factory floor, and therefore manufacturing leaders (and leaders in any industry) need to spend time regularly with their front-line employees.
