Waste in Lean Manufacturing refers to anything that does not add value to the customer, it can be – process, activity, product, or service that requires the industry to invest manpower, time, and capital.
Just-In-Time replenishment is one of the Lean Manufacturing principles which involves the delivery of the right materials, at the right place, at the right time, and in the right quantities.
