The basic seven wastes of Muda was reflected with the wisdom of the Chief Engineer at Toyota, remembered as Taiichi Ohno also expressed in the Toyota Production System (TPS).
The seven wastes can be remembered through a single word i.e. TIMWOOD, and expanded as Transportation, Inventory, Motion, Waiting, Overproduction, Over-processing and Defects. TIMWOOD is an acronym for these seven wastes. The eighth waste is introduced later in 1990, and it is related to non-utilized talent or ‘Skills’ of employees. As an outcome, the eight wastes are not generally known as ‘TIMWOODS’.
