This is a work process introduced in 1980 for the business sector, when a small Japanese manufacturer of car needed a powerful innovation in order to compete with the giants of the automotive industry. It eliminates waste and allows workers to be always at the forefront, optimizing productivity. Today different sector firms have adopted it. Obtaining numerous advantages.

Choose qualified employees who have attended refresher courses and specialization in order to perform multiple functions. Can so to keep the flow constant work when a worker is absent and increase customer loyalty. Use a program such as Six Sigma to systematically reduce or eliminate the defects of the production cycle.

Designs in an intelligent and careful design: it must be attractive, efficient and does not involve working times disproportionate to the economic value of the final presented to users. Maintain the inventory to a minimum A precise control of the inventory is of vital importance for good implementation of Lean Thinking. Raw materials and those used in the work-in-process must be able to bear the costs of storage.
