7 Wastes in Engineering Design
Improper information on a drawing, missing views and incomplete information are all defects that can be avoided through
document standardization and proper training of engineering staff.
engineering department, it would be the unnecessary documentation (modeling or drawing) of a part
before it is needed.
If we draw something before it is actually needed,
we are adding to that inventory, thereby incurring waste.
Movement of drawings and drawing change orders is often called “transportation” because carrying, mailing, or even e-mailing documents stop the design process and
add time to the overall design cycle.
Waiting refers to the time spent by the workers or engineers literally waiting for their work to arrive.
Even the extra step of printing to a PDF and e-mailing it as an attachment is a wasteful operation.
it’s common to see manufacturers using software that has function (and cost) beyond what is needed which is a waste.
