Let the flow manage the processes, and not let management manage the flow. – Taiichi Ohno

Lean means “manufacturing without waste.” Waste (“muda” in Japanese) has many forms. Material, time, idle equipment, and inventory are examples. Most companies waste 70%-90% of their available resources. Even the best Lean Manufacturers probably waste 30%.

Lean Manufacturing and Cellular Manufacturing improve material handling, inventory, quality, scheduling, personnel and customer satisfaction.
