Waste Analysis by Operation

Use the Waste Analysis by Operation form to identify the types of waste at each process step and to quantify and color-code the degree of the waste.


  1. Open the tables and select existing activities from a process map or enter process steps manually.
  2. Evaluate each of the waste categories for each process step. Use a 0-9 scale, where 9 indicates total waste and 0 indicated no observed waste. Values have the following color code.
    • 0 to 2 = Green
    • 3 to 5 = Yellow
    • 6 to 9 = Red
