What is Lean?
The core idea of lean is actually quite simple…relentlessly work on eliminating waste from the process.
So what is waste? Waste is defined as any activity that does not add value from the customer’s perspective. According to research conducted by the Lean Enterprise Research Centre (LERC), fully 60% of production activities in a typical manufacturing operation are waste – they add no value at all for the customer.
The good news is that just about every company has a tremendous opportunity to improve, using lean techniques and other manufacturing best practices. Techniques that enable you to deliver higher quality products at significantly lower costs. Now that is something to get excited about!
