What is Lean?

The terms lean manufacturing, lean production, or lean management refer to a complete business system for organizing and managing product development, operations, suppliers, customer relations, and the overall enterprise that requires less capital, material, space, time, and  human effort to produce products and services with fewer defects to precise customer desires, compared with traditional modern management.
