CI Terms Defined


"Muda Walk"

"Muda" is a Japanese word for waste.  A muda walk is an activity in which a group of people walk the operational floor to spot any of the 8 Wastes of Lean.

A muda walk is commonly done when training in Lean.  It also can be effective in spotting opportunities for continuous improvement.  It really only works well if participants can stay quiet and observe for a period of time, as in an Ohno circle.  Also, operators should be consulted for any issues they experience that may not be immediately visible.



Video Links from Youtube:
