This study aims to demonstrate the importance of waste analysis and similarity of results. For that, the HFMEA-FUZZY was used as a tool. The study used waste results from 20 emergency care units (ECUs) from different regions of Brazilthrough the HFMEA criteria and complemented with the concepts of logic Fuzzy with the COPPE COSENZA methodology. The use of HFMEA-FUZZY aims to contribute to research in the health area where Lean healthcare will be or is already implemented. For that, it served as a basis for reports prepared after visits carried out in the emergency care units (ECUs).
