- Well Structured
Engineer and consultant Pascal Dennis’s Toyota sensei (teachers) instructed him on how to summarize the Lean production system succinctly yet elegantly. Dennis starts with the history and purpose of Lean, which is to do more with less while providing excellent customer value. Think of Lean production as a house with stability and standardization as its foundation, customer values its roof, and “just-in-time” and quality control its pillars. The heart is the workforce, from the shop floor to the executive suite. Lean is a process for continuous learning, with perfection as the goal.
