Japanese management technique based on 5 simple principles:
It is a process of continuous improvement based on concrete actions, simple and little onerous, and that involves all the workers of a company, from the managers to the base workers. As it implies a change of attitude in the worker and also in the company , both definitions point to different parts but at no time lose their connection, the one cannot exist without the other, something similar to the Taoist philosophy that establishes yin and yang .
Lean production is a management model that focuses on minimizing the losses of manufacturing systems while maximizing the creation of value for the end customer. For this, it uses the minimum amount of resources, that is, those strictly necessary for growth. Types of waste:
- Wasted time.
- Excess procedures.
- Don't use people's creativity.
Eliminating wastefulness improves quality and reduces production time and cost
