Simply stated, the core idea of lean manufacturing can be summed up as: ”relentlessly working on eliminating waste from the manufacturing process”.
Waste is defined as any activity that does not add value from the customer’s perspective. According to research conducted by the Lean Enterprise Research Centre, 60% of production activities in a typical manufacturing operation are waste. They add no value at all for the customer.
Most companies have a tremendous opportunity to improve operations using lean manufacturing principles and other manufacturing best practices. Principles and practices that enable you to deliver higher quality products at significantly lower costs.
