When flexibility and speed are requisites for success, it’s the lean organization that leads the race. World-class manufacturing organizations know the value of focusing on the lean fundamentals: eliminating waste, simplifying processes, and continuously improving. By pursuing lean strategies—optimizing inventory and streamlining manufacturing processes—they can reduce inefficiencies and costs in their production processes, and improve customer responsiveness.

waste, simplifying processes, and continuous improvement. Lean is about doing more with less: less time, effort, space and money. Lean strategies allow manufacturers to systematically and continuously eliminate the waste that results from inefficient processes, which can include inventory, over production, waiting, transportation, motion, over processing, and defective products. Optimizing inventory and streamlining manufacturing processes are two commonly deployed lean manufacturing strategies because
