  1. Understanding the value added and non-value added activity from customer point of view.
  2. Type of wastages and list of common lean tools for batter understanding.
  3. Understanding of Lean management and Lean principals.


Lean is a continuous improvement philosophy which is Synonymous with Kaizen or the Toyota Production System. The history of lean management or lean manufacturing is traced back to the early years of Toyota and the development of the Toyota Production System after Japan?s defeat in WWII when the company was looking for a means to compete with the US car industry through developing and implementing a range of low-cost improvements within their business.
In brief, lean management seeks to implement business processes that achieve high quality, safety and worker morale, whilst reducing cost and shortening lead times. This in itself is not unique to Japan. What sets lean management apart, and makes it particularly effective, is that it has at its core a laser-sharp focus on the elimination of all waste from all processes.
The Eight Wastes
So what do we mean by waste? Here we are referring to any expenditure of resources that doesn?t add value for the customer. In lean manufacturing there are generally considered to be seven types of waste.
1. Over-production against plan
2. Waiting time of operators and machines
3. Unnecessary transportation
4. Waste in the process itself
5. Excess stock (Inventory) of material and components
6. Non value-adding motion
7. Defects in quality
8. Not tapping Potential (Unutilised resources)
Some of the concepts and tools that are commonly encountered in lean are shown here.
- Process Levelling and Flow
- Performance Management
- Push vs Pull Production
- Visual Management
- Standardisation
- Target Setting
- 5S
- Kanban
- Pokayoke
- Just-In-Time
