Lean manufacturing helps organizations improve the efficiency of the manufacturing process by eliminating waste & non-value-added activities in the manufacturing system. The lean manufacturing concept is originally initiated in Japan by Toyota. The concept of lean manufacturing is explained in the following three types of waste. 1. Muda (Waste) 2. Mura (Uneven) 3. Muri (Overburden)

CAPA is a systematic approach to solve the problem. CAPA tool is not a problem-solving tool it acts as an improvement tool also.
An Ishikawa diagram is also known as 5M-1E or cause and effect or fishbone diagram. The fishbone diagram is one of the 7 Quality tools. This tool is mainly used to find multiple root causes of one single problem. Fishbone/Ishikawa diagram is one of the effective tools of problem-solving. 5M-1E Fish-bone diagram mostly used for problem-solving in the automotive and other manufacturing industries.
The principal of 5-Why analysis is very simple, by asking 'why' five times a problem investigator can discover the real root cause of the problem.
