What is “lean production”?

Lean production (or lean manufacturing) is an industrial philosophy based on what is known as the Toyota Production System. It is an approach to manufacturing that aims at producing exactly what customers want and right when they need it.

The 5 principles of lean production are:
1. Value for the customer: performing only activities that create value for the customer;
2. Value flow mapping: identifying the activities that create value;
3. Creating a flow:performing the activities one after the other without interruption, from end to end;
4. Making the customer "pull" the value (pull system): manufacturing only when the customer asks to; in so doing, you produce only what customers want and when they want it;
5. Pursuing perfection: never settling for the results achieved (continuous improvement).
