Title: What Is Lean Production


1
What Is Lean Production?
  • Lean Production is the process by which the
    number of inputs into the production process are
    kept to the minimum

2
Mass Production
  • This is the production of large quantities of
    identical products often on assembly lines
  • Idea developed by Henry Ford
  • Workers specialise
  • Allowed reduction in costs
  • Communications and quality were not good

3
Cell Production
  • This is a method of production where similar
    tasks are grouped together
  • Workers working close together in the cell
    cooperate and sort out problems together

4
Just In Time Production
  • This is a method of production when the stocks
    are delivered only when they are needed
  • This keeps stocks at a minimum at the factory
  • This avoids wasting money on holding large
    amounts of stock

5
The Workforce
  • Workers are encourages to get involved to help
    improve the business
  • This is known as Kaizen which means continuous
    improvement
  • Each worker is encouraged to make suggestions
  • The workers meet in Quality Circles to suggest
    ways to improve quality

6
What Is Benchmarking?
  • This is the comparison of performance between one
    business and another to see how well it is doing
  • If it is not so good then it knows it has to
    improve
