Waste minimisation is a set of processes and practices intended to reduce the amount of waste produced. By reducing or eliminating the generation of harmful and persistent wastes, waste minimisation supports efforts to promote a more sustainable society. Waste minimisation involves redesigning products and processes and/or changing societal patterns of consumption and production. (from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waste_minimisation)
Added value and impact
Project specific Kanban
Comment: Within the project, a life cycle environmental impacts optimization of industrial system is performed, combining it with life cycle costs and building a multi-objective optimization. Since the hot forming process is used to produce light weight car body parts, the improvement of this process by the LD solutions influences the possibilities of increasing the resource efficiency of the cars.
Comment: This is the main goal of the application of the LD solution in the "Metrology-driven Manufacturing in the Automobile Industry".
