Lean methodology

Understanding Lean

Lean is a methodology proven to drive outstanding business performance by improving processes and enhancing customer value through systemically eliminating waste.

PMI’s Lean methodology ties together a number of Lean tools into a system for business improvement. These include Standardisation; 5S, Removal of 8 Wastes, Vale Stream Mapping, Just-in-Time Delivery and Jidoka (the ability to detect and stop abnormalities before defects occur).  Lean is based on process thinking, the Plan-Do-Study-Act cycle and most importantly developing flexible and motivated team members.
