The Lean approach initially was originated in Japan. Firstly, companies applied the concept to manufacturing and production processes. The objective of the Lean approach is very simple: eliminate or minimize waste within the process without impacting the results.
According to research by the Lean Enterprise Research Centre (LERC), 60% of production activities in a typical manufacturing operation are waste! Various businesses continually report significant Lean efforts and success stories in multiple industries for production and manufacturing processes.
