Introduction to lean

Lean manufacturing, lean enterprise, or lean production, often simply, "Lean", is a production practice that considers the expenditure of resources for any goal other than the creation of value for the end customer to be wasteful, and thus a target for elimination. Working from the perspective of the customer who consumes a product or service, "value" is defined as any action or process that a customer would be willing to pay for. Essentially, lean is centred on preserving value with less work. Lean manufacturing is a management philosophy derived mostly from the Toyota Production System (TPS) (hence the term Toyotism is also prevalent)The original seven muda are:• Transport (moving products that are not actually required to perform the processing)• Inventory (all components, work in process and finished product not being processed)• Motion (people or equipment moving or walking more than is required to perform the processing)• Waiting (waiting for the next production step)• Overproduction (production ahead of demand)• Over Processing (resulting from poor tool or product design creating activity)• Defects (the effort involved in inspecting for and fixing defects)
