Productivity challenges come in many shapes and forms – not knowing where people are, time lost searching, material going to waste, components lost, important data not available, manual checking and monitoring, replacing of parts… These are all types of waste, the productivity killer… we call it MUDA. At scale, MUDA is a multi-billion dollar problem, draining vast amounts of value from businesses.
MUDA comes from a Japanese word meaning wastefulness. It was adopted as a concept in Lean business process re-engineering, where it represents the opposite of value-added work. MUDA is value-subtracted work!
At Identec Solutions, we identify where the problems are and create solutions to eliminate wastefulness.
WE’LL SHOW YOU HOW TO FIND THE MUDA IN THE MAZE AND PUT THE VALUE-ADDED BACK IN YOUR BUSINESS.
