anything that does not contribute to transforming a part to the customer's needs. There are seven types of manufacturing waste: production over immediate demand; excess work in progress and finished goods inventories; scrap, repairs and rejects; unnecessary motion; excessive processing; wait time; and unnecessary transportation.
In Just- in-Time, any activity that does not add value to the good or service in the eyes of the consumer.

Unwanted materials remaining from manufacturing processes, or refuse from humans and animals.

Any activity which utilizes equipment, materials, parts, space, employee time or other corporate resource beyond the minimum amount required for value-added operations to insure manufacturability. These activities could include waiting, accumulating semi-processed parts, reloading, passing materials from one hand to the other and other non-productive processes. The seven basic categories of waste which a business should strive to eliminate: overproduction, waiting for machines, transportation time, process time, excess inventory, excess motion and defects.
1. Unwanted materials left over from a manufacturing process. 2. Refuse from places of human or animal habitation.
Materials that are not prime products (that is, products produced for the market) for which the generator has no further use in terms of his/her own purposes of production, transformation or consumption, and of which he/she wants to dispose.

Residuals recycled or reused at the place of generation are excluded.
