processing approach to a single-piece through-put environment, or lean manufacturing. Lean
Manufacturing, Also known simply as "lean", it is a philosophy that considers the expenditure of resources
for any goal other than the creation of value for the end customer to be wasteful, and thus a target for elimination.
The seven wastes that are targeted by lean are: overproduction, unnecessary transportation, inventory,
motion, defects, over-processing and waiting. The tools, techniques and practices are derived from the
Toyota Production System.
