What is Lean ?
LEAN is a philosophy that improves the bottom line result by reducing the lead time, avoiding overproduction, over administration and creating flow in and across the company’s processes.
It shortens the time between a request for a product or service by eliminating wasteful work and processes.
It helps the business doing less to process more by working smarter.
The core idea is to maximise customer value while minimising waste.
Simply, lean means creating more value for customers with fewer resources and remove all non-value added activities.
It is done by:
Only focus on the customer's requirements
Understand the purpose of every process
Work flowing at the rate of the customer demand
