Lean is a continuous improvement and a value oriented strategy of creating more value to the customers (users) using minimum resources with minimization of wastes in every steps of process.

Note:

Value- Ability to provide the customers what they want in right time, quality and cost.

Waste-Any activity that utilizes time, space and resources without adding value to the product.

Lean is not just only a cost related practice. It’s way of thinking and organization of entire organization. It helps organization to be innovative and competitive.

Lean Management is the concept of running a business or an organization with continuous improvement with small and incremental changes to improve the value of product or service (with improved quality) and decrease wastes, defects and cost.
