Lean Manufacturing, which is often known simply as "Lean", is an operational strategy oriented toward achieving the shortest possible cycle time by eliminating waste. Derived from the Toyota Production System, this strategy helps decrease the time between a customer’s order and shipment. It is designed to radically improve profitability, customer satisfaction, throughput time, and employee morale. Benefits include lower costs, higher quality, and shorter lead times.
