Value Stream Mapping, Lean Manufacturing Effect


Lean manufacturing is “A systematic approach to identifying and eliminating waste through continuous improvement”. The concept of lean thinking originated from Toyota production system. Lean manufacturing focuses on efficiency and services at lowest cost as fast as possible. In industry material handling is the most important part of the production department. And in many industries like milk dairies, sugar factories, fertilizer companies where decrease in time and elimination of labor cost in a material handling system is very important.
