Lean Manufacturing

Lean Manufacturing produces more with existing resources by eliminating non-value added activities. Manufacturers are facing increased competition and the stakes are high. The winners in this competition work to eliminate overproduction caused by traditional scheduling systems and only make what customers want when they want it. Lean establishes a systematic approach to eliminating waste and creating flow throughout the whole company. It also helps develop and implement a long-term plan to streamline operations for success.
