We spent the last few weeks in Canada visiting family. We had an awesome trip. As we were driving from Texas (yes driving with 3 kids more than 2400 miles) I had my eyes peeled for some good lean or six sigma topics.
While driving in North Dakota I noticed something big approaching. I couldn’t tell what it was initially. As I approached the large object I realized I was looking at the essence of transportation muda (waste). What was it you may ask?
An airplane wing. I am not sure where this wing was headed as we were about 60 miles from Fargo… but rest assured no value was being added to this airplane wing or the airplane it was going to be attached to.Curious where the second wing was in this “value stream” I continued to drive only to approach wing #2 in about 30 minutes.
My photographer (wife) was busy with the kids so we didn’t get a picture of it but rest assured it was just as wasteful looking. More to come on my trip and the state I absolutely fell in love with.
