Lean is a systematic methodology with a focus on the Customer to separate Value-Added and Non-Value Added Activities ( Waste ), and then reduce and eliminate Waste in all processes.

For a practitioner, it is a manufacturing system that allows minimal use of resources to produce defect-free products in the shortest possible time with least amount of left over. In short ‘Maximum with Minimum’.

Lean is a system that drives organization toward zero waste. It is called Lean because Lean system

  • Needs less human effort to design, make and service products.
  • Requires less investment for a given amount of production capacity.
  • Creates products with fewer delivered defects and fewer in-process turn-backs.
  • Utilizes fewer suppliers with higher skills.
  • Goes from concept-to-launch, order-to-delivery and problem-to-repair in less time with less human effort.
  • Could cost-effectively produce products in lower volume with wider variety to sustain pricing in the market while growing share.
  • Needs less inventory at every step from order to delivery and in the service system.

A Lean Manufacturing practicing organization will significantly improve its business and operational performance like Throughput, Quality, Delivery, Cost, Safety, Inventory Turns, Profitability, ROI and Cash Flow.
