Traditionally, waste is viewed as an unnecessary element arising from the activities of any industry. In reality, waste is misplaced resource, existing at wrong place at a wrong time. Waste is also the inefficient use of utilities such as electricity, water and fuel which are often considered unavoidable overheads. The costs of these wastes are generally underestimated. It is important to realize, that the cost of waste is not only the cost of disposal but also other costs such as: o Disposal cost o Inefficient energy use cost o Purchase cost of wasted raw material o Production cost for the waste material o Management time spent on waste material o Lost revenue for what could have been a product instead of waste We use the best practice for waste minimization by reducing the generation of waste at the source itself by Lean manufacturing. Lean manufacturing considers the expenditure of resources for any goal other than the creation of value for the end customer to be wasteful, and thus a target for elimination. Working from the perspective of the customer who consumes a product or service. DAIA helps its customers to align all functions to create the greatest value with least amount of waste.
