Lean production stands for lean production, which is about continuous improvement and increasing efficiency in production.
In the lean production strategy, the factors determining production - personnel, production resources and materials - are used sparingly and in a dedicated manner. Lean production, together with lean management, can contribute to a comprehensive reduction of costs and thus to an increase in profitability. Important aspects of lean production are the involvement of the supply industry and the rapid adaptation of production to new customer requirements. A high degree of flexibility allows temporary production capacities to be optimally utilized, warehousing to be kept low and long transport routes to be avoided.
Lean management incorporated into lean production prevents long production times, overproduction and product rejects, thus ensuring high product quality.
