What is A Lean Manufacturing Mindset?

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 requires a mindset that focuses on the customer and sees waste as a cost not to be tolerated by the organization.  While this makes sense many aspects of lean are counterintuitive to traditional manufacturing thinking and practices.
