The Concept and Origin

Lean Manufacturing or Lean Production, which is often known simply as 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.Lean manufacturing includes a set of principles that lean thinkers use to achieve improvements in productivity, quality, and lead-time by eliminating waste through kaizen. Kaizen is a Japanese word that essentially means "change for the better" or "good change." The goal is to provide the customer with a defect free product or service when it is needed and, in the quantity, it is needed.
