Lean Manufacturing


In this Lean Manufacturing presentation, we explore the Lean philosophy, which is rooted in the Toyota Production System (TPS). Lean aims to enhance customer value by optimizing processes and eliminating waste, ultimately increasing productivity and value with fewer resources.

A key aspect of Lean is distinguishing between two types of activities: value-added (VA) and non-value-added (NVA) activities, assessed from the customer's perspective.

VA activities deliver value to products and services, such as answering customer queries or assembling parts, enhancing form, fit, or function, which customers are willing to pay for.

Conversely, NVA activities, like filing or waiting, add cost or time but do not contribute value and should be minimized or eliminated.

By addressing waste across the entire business process, organizations not only enhance the value of their offerings but also reduce costs, improve cash flow, and increase competitiveness, particularly in challenging times like a pandemic or downturn.

This Lean Manufacturing presentation equips managers and employees with a better understanding of Lean principles, waste elimination, and encourages active involvement in Lean implementation, promoting a culture of continuous improvement.
