Lean Is …

A scrapyard.

What is lean?  The following definition is from the Oregon Manufacturing Extension Partnership website, http://www.omep.org:

Lean Is

A systematic approach for delivering the highest quality, lowest cost products with the shortest lead-times through the relentless elimination of waste.

The eights wastes that accompanied this definition include:

  1. Overproduction
  2. Waiting
  3. Transportation
  4. Non-Value-Added Processing
  5. Excess Inventory
  6. Defects
  7. Excess Motion
  8. Underutilized People

It is very easy to become overwhelmed by the incredible amount of information on the subject of Lean.  I always like to refer back to the basic tenets of lean to keep things in perspective.

Until Next Time – STAY lean!
