Lean Production is a manufacturing performance improvement approach and philosophy that emphasizes the minimization of the amount of all the resources (including time) used in the various activities of the enterprise.

Lean producers employ teams of multi-skilled workers at all levels of the organization and use highly flexible, increasingly automated machines to produce volumes of products in potentially enormous variety. It contains a set of principles and practices to reduce cost through the relentless removal of Waste and through the simplification of all manufacturing and support processes.
