This paper discusses the use of the lean principles within the Product Development process and, in particular, the effect of identifying and cataloguing waste at the process level. The research is part of the Lean Product and Process Development project (LeanPPD) aimed at increasing and sustaining value at this crucial stage of a product’s lifecycle. The paper presents the initial development of an Ontology of Waste, developed with industrial support, as an everyday tool for Project Team members to identify the types of waste within a process. A statistic often quoted is that over 80% of time involved in the design process is waste. This research is aimed at providing a tool for capturing and classifying these wastes so that they can be understood and quantified in order to help companies to mitigate against them.
