    Let’s take the first waste in the list – defects. This could include inspection and repair of material in inventory or in the work areas caused by: weak process control; poor process capability; no standards or SOP’s; deficient PM; bad product or process design; or not having customer needs met. The impacts could be that stuff doesn’t flow in normal way; extra inspection is required; the quality gets managements’ attention; so we start to scramble to recover.
