Does anyone know of any sources, books, web-sites, contacts, or companies in the printing industry that have utilized continuous improvement and the Lean Journey to improve their organization?   Any information would be beneficial.

I am from business where the frist part of our process is screen printing which is very much a batch process and doesnt lend itself to lean processes such as single piece flow. I am happy that we can implement lean and single piece flow in subsequent assembly process but printing is very much geared to batching.

I too would be interested in learning more about people who have done it.

Declan.
