Lean Production
 

Lean production is a system of production based on eliminating 'muda', the term meaning waste in its broadest interpretation.

Lean production involves:

  • eliminating defects, achieving perfect first pass quality
  • eliminating all non-value adding activities
  • continuous improvement (kaizen)
  • using pull systems of production (eg. kanban)
  • flexibility, ability for quick changeovers and immediate response to changes in demand
  • long term relationships with suppliers involving strong and open communication

Terms used in Lean Production include:

5S Standard Work
Andons Takt Time
Cycle Time Theory of Constraints
Kaizen Throughput
Kaizen Blitz Total Productive Maintenance
Kanban Touch Time
Muda Value Stream Maps
Poka yoke Visual Factory
Procedures Work in Progress
