Lean Production – Lean Processes and Systems
“Lean Production” is the economical, time-efficient and quality-assured use of the “4M” production factors in a factory.
(4M: human, machine, material, method = process)
Principals of Lean Production
The core principles of the system developed by Toyota for automobile production are also used today in semiconductor production.
Lean Production is about principles that achieve more effective results by optimally interacting with each other:
- Combining responsibility and competence
- Reduction of errors and waste
- Working in networks
- Strive for continuous improvement
- Synchronization of processes
- Restructuring on demand
