Lean manufacturing

Lean manufacturing (lean production) is a business philosophy that continuously shortens the time between customer order and shipment by eliminating wastes - anything that increases the cost of production and time of delivery to customers. Through a relentless pursuit to eliminate waste, operations can be conducted more efficiently and at less cost. An efficient process means an agile one – which can quickly adapt to customer demands.

An organization that practices lean management, should eliminate any worthless activities. This may significantly shorten the manufacturing lifecycle and reduce the final price of goods.

No matter in what industry lean manufacturing is implemented, it should be adapted for certain company specifics. Nevertheless, implementation of lean manufacturing system brings benefit by increasing work efficiency and cost reduction.
