It has revolutionized automotive manufacturing with kaizen (the Japanese term for improvement, which in the manufacturing context
In the manufacturing arena, lean is a top topic.

Where the Real Value Is Found Real value creation is found via the extension of lean manufacturing concepts across the supply chain network.
