About Lean

“Lean” means continuously improving towards the ideal and achieving the shortest possible cycle time through the tireless reduction of waste.

  • It is focused on eliminating waste in all processes
  • It is about expanding capacity by reducing costs and shortening cycle times
  • It is about understanding what is important to the customer
  • It is not about eliminating people

Examples of Lean Projects:

  • Reduced inventory
  • Reduced floor space
  • Quicker response times and shorter lead times
  • Decreased defects, rework, scrap
  • Increased overall productivity
