lean production

Lean production stands for lean production, which is about continuous improvement and increasing efficiency in production.

In the lean production strategy, the production-determining factors personnel, means of production and material are used sparingly and dedicatedly. Lean production, together with lean management, can contribute to an overall reduction in 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 used optimally, storage 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.
