Muda or 7 Types of Waste in Software Production

Muda or 7 Types of Waste in Software Production

Anyone who has ever dealt with Lean has probably encountered seven types of waste (Muda). And since Lean was originally created for industrial production, at first it was more difficult for me to find out how these 7 types of waste would be transferred to software production. 

Personally, an article on the kanbanize.com website helped me a lot a few years ago. I started collecting other examples of waste, which I sorted into individual categories. I came to the conclusion that such an overview would suit every scrum master (and not only him). If you think about the structure of waste types, it will be easier for you to find its occurrence in your teams. And that’s why I share at least a few basic points with you.
