Refers to activities directed to maintaining current technological, managerial, and operational standards. Maintenance in this sense constitutes a "floor" upon which improvement efforts are based. Maintenance, thus, is distinguished from KAIZEN and Innovation, which move the "floor" upward by means of the PDCA cycle.


Contrasted to Product-Out, this concept concerns a factual understanding of customer needs and wants, and figures in how to satisfy them, rather than assuming that the company knows what those needs and wants are. It also implies that those companies do best who can anticipate the latent customer needs and wants before customers are even aware that such products and services might be possible.


Japanese word for "Waste". One of the "3 Ms" (Muda, Mura [Irregularity or Unevenness] and Muri [Strain].) There are seven types of Muda ? Overproduction, Inventory, Transportation, Waiting, Motion, Overprocessing, and Correction.

Muda Walk

A half-hour walk through the Gemba to observe evidence of what may be various types of Muda. The object of this walk is to show that the Gemba is full of data and opportunities for improvement for those whose eyes are trained to see them. Muda walks are not intended to provide opportunities for blaming and finding fault.
