Benefits of Lean Manufacturing

Lean Manufacturing (Lean) is a system for improving manufacturing processes and services, based on the Toyota Production System (TPS), which can achieve immediate results in productivity and profitability.Implementing Lean seeks to achieve value creation by eliminating activities that add no value to the process and not investing in expensive high-tech systems.
