The concept of the Toyota production system is known today in the USA as 'lean manufacturing'. The basic idea behind the system is elimination of waste. Waste is defined as anything that does not add value to the product from customers' perspective. This paper deals with application of Five-S and Kaizen from Toyota production system for waste minimisation at Eaton line in a medium size manufacturing company. The data collection and analysis resulted in reduction of cycle time of turning machine, broaching, drilling and chamfering, shaping and internal shaping and de-burring and buffing machine. At the same time, reductions in tool search time, material movements and WIP have also been achieved.
