ean is a method that improves process speed by detecting and eliminating waste. It’s about working smarter, not harder. Lean is about optimising the value adding capability.
Lean thinking can be summarised in a Five Step Process:
- Step 1 – Specify value
- Step 2 – Identify the Value Stream
- Step 3 – Flow of a unit
- Step 4 – Pull
- Step 5 - Perfection
