3. Transport

If e.g. a document travels through several people to the actual target person, then the waste type transport is present.

Examples for Transport in the Office

  • Transporting information about too many managers.
  • Data transport due to too many interfaces in one process.
  • The route from a telephone call to the right contact person.
  • Data transport between two used software solutions, e.g. between a spreadsheet and the ERP system.
  • Extensive, paper-bound house mail.
