Lean Manufacturing & Production Consulting

What is Lean?

Also referred to as Lean manufacturing, Lean enterprise, or Lean production, Lean is a production practice that focuses on maximizing value for the customer through decreased cost and production time by minimizing or even eliminating waste. Lean principles derive from a management philosophy of the Japanese manufacturing industry, particularly from the Toyota Production System (TPS).

Lean is focused on eliminating seven waste types:

  1. Transportation
  2. Inventory
  3. Motion
  4. Waiting
  5. Over-Production
  6. Over-Processing
  7. Defects/Rework
