What is Lean Manufacturing?
Simply put, lean organizations are customer-focused. They
reduce waste in their value streams by improving workflows
and then by subsequently improving the physical layout of
their facilities. Process capacity is managed and actually
increased by reducing set-up times, improving quality, and
ensuring equipment works when it is counted upon to work.
Successful implementation of a lean initiative will
improve an organization's marketplace and financial
performance. However, many aspects of lean are
counterintuitive to traditional manufacturing thinking and
practices. It is vital that organizations adopting a lean
approach understand the scope, the many elements, and the
potential pitfalls of lean.
