Abstract

LEAN culture and practices refer to the continuous achievement of improvements in quality and productivity by leveraging the abilities of personnel and production innovations, which lead to increased gross margin and decreased production costs. Its principles involve the use of observation, waste elimination, technical improvements, problem solving and organizational learning. LEAN rules are structured activities that connect to both suppliers and customers, in simple and data driven way. Methodological tools such as Kaizen events, Five S, Poka Yoka and others have been developed to aid in the implementation of Lean practices.
