LEAN is an industry term for 'streamlining', 'waste elimination', 'speeding up', 'process improvement' and 'building in flexibility'. A manufacturing LEAN analysis is conducted to determine if improvements can be made to create a more efficient manufacturing process. LEAN comprises a set of tools which are applied to any manufacturing setting in order to drive out waste thereby streamlining operations. We utilize a detailed value stream map, apply theory of constraints in order to zero in on the bottleneck of the operation and then apply various other techniques to make best use of your current assets. We look first and foremost at NOT adding Capital or Manpower.
