8 Wastes in Construction


8 Wastes in Construction

We cannot eliminate what we can’t see. This course helps you to see the Waste, to identify it among the classic 8 Wastes, easily remembered by the acronym D-O-W-N-T-I-M-E: Defects, Over-Processing, Waiting, Non-Utilized human talent, Transportation, Inventory, Motion and Extra Production.

This course includes 12 short 3-5 minute videos with Action Plans and optional Quizzes. Through visual instruction, coupled with ideas for putting your learning into action, you’ll easily learn to clarify what the customer defines as value. And how to spot waste all around you. You’ll learn how to remove waste to create flow and reduce the time it takes to accomplish your work.
