Lean Manufacturing


"Lean" is a management philosophy based on the Toyota Production System (TPS). With Lean manufacturing, you will be able to enhance value for your customers by streamlining process flow and eliminating waste. Simply put, with Lean, you will be able to increase productivity and create greater customer value with less resources. The Lean approach shows you how to increase profits by reducing the cost of waste. And lean is a practice consisting of continuous experimentation to achieve perfect value with zero waste.

Based on the Lean philosophy, all activities in an organization can be grouped into two categories: value-added (VA) activities, and non-value-added (NVA) activities. It should be noted that VA and NVA activities (waste) are viewed from the customer perspective.

VA activities are those that bring higher value to products and services. Examples are answering customer queries, entering orders, ordering materials, laying foundation, creating codes, assembling parts, shipping of goods to customers, etc. Customers are willing to pay for these improvements which can change the form, fit or function of a product or service.

On the other hand, NVA activities are tasks that add cost or time but do not add value. Examples are filing, copying, recording, waiting, counting, checking, inspecting, testing, reviewing and obtaining approvals. These activities should be eliminated, simplified or reduced as much as possible.

By tackling waste from an end-to-end business process, not only can your company improve the value of its products and services, you can also achieve significant cost reduction, strengthen cash flow and emerge from the pandemic or downturn with a stronger and more competitive profile.

By teaching this Lean manufacturing PPT presentation, managers and employees will have a better understanding of the Lean principles and approach to eliminating waste, and will be more forthcoming to lead and participate in the Lean implementation process.
