Ask people what they do when a faulty part comes off the line.
Discarding it or discreetly putting it out of the way is a sign of inefficiency. Finally, ask about product develompment
Are cost and timing goals set during develompment?. Are start.ups well managed and low in cost?.

Immediately following the tour, team members should meet to share their observations and impressions and to develop a report
assessing the plant´s leanness and estimating its cost of sales. This metting should happen right away, since visual
data leave a vivid, but fleeting, impression.
The team should use both the RPA rating sheet and the
