Definition, explanations and advice of the Lean approach through several methods and tools

Lean is an industrial management method, with the main objective of progress. More precisely, the Lean approach makes it possible to create maximum value while consuming the minimum of resources. The continuous improvement process is the fundamental principle of Lean Enterprise.

The principles of the Lean approach

The production management method has spread, for more than 20 years, within industrial companies. Lean is based on the philosophy of Toyota's production system (TPS), originally called "just-in-time production". The Lean approach is a production management method based on the search for performance through continuous improvement and the elimination of waste.

Lean therefore begins with a phase of analysis of the field's reality and of the teams for the approach to work in the best way. But it is not enough to apply simple methods such as Kaizen or change production to just-in-time without improving quality. Lean is first and foremost a state of mind. It is therefore essential that the production teams and management work together to complete this project. The Lean approach sets up a continuous learning dynamic, allowing the development of all employees and thus strengthening the company.

Over time, Lean has been separated into several categories: Lean Management, Lean Manufacturing, Lean Office, Automation with Industry 4.0 and Employee Well-Being through Ergonomics. Each of these approaches is based on a similar philosophy, a similar state of mind but uses different tools.

Lean Enterprise application and tools

The advantages and disadvantages of continuous improvement

The Lean approach has several methods of application on different domains and services. Applying a Lean method for the sole purpose of increasing your industrial performance and profits is not the objective. Speeding up the pace without worrying about your employees and their well-being is not a principle of Lean Manufacturing or Lean Management. With such conditions, staff will not be motivated and work stoppages will be imposed because of the non-ergonomic work pace. Lean's mindset is the opposite, putting the well-being of employees first and then improving productivity. This means changing their work habits to reduce unnecessary movements, waste of raw materials, space, etc. It is on these points that some factories deviate from continuous improvement.
