 The Lean Manufacturing Guide

Powerpoint Presentation




As enterprises have reduced costs and improved quality, the primary competitive measure is the ability to respond to the customer.

The essence of "lean" is to compress time from the receipt of an order all the way through to the receipt of payment.

The Lean Manufacturing Guide presents an overview of lean manufacturing concepts and introduces methods and tools designed to put these concepts to work in a manufacturing environment.
