The Concepts of Lean Thinking

Doing a little research and found an article that pointed these out:

  • Sort: Eliminate what is not needed.
  • Set in order. Organize what remains.
  • Shine. Clean work area.
  • Standardize. Schedule cleaning and maintenance.
  • Sustain. Make lean thinking a way of life.
This is from the book Lean Thinking: Banish Waste and Create Wealth by Womack and Jones.
