Waste of Motion

Motion waste is the unnecessary movement of people, product or equipment that adds no value to a process. Workers walk back and forth from the work are to supply , around unneeded equipment or perform redundant motions that can be eliminated to speed up a process. This can be one of the most frustrating wastes for workers and management. The lost time and production rob most processes of opportunity to function efficiently and make the employees work harder. While most processes are not designed to have motion wastes in them, it is one of the first wastes to creep in and cause disruption.

Look for excessive walking, moving or handling and prepare a complex diagramme of actual process flow.

While operating a machine or performing any activity on shop-floor , some of movements / motions of operator does not add value.
This can be reduced by studying carefully each and every movement / motion of operator and standardizing each activity.
I.e loading place / unloading / lifting place
