Lean Manufacturing brings principles of flow, pull, and leveling into the manufacturing arena and along with it, a new set of terms and tools.  First developed at Toyota and proven worldwide in automotive, lean manufacturing is more challenging in make-to-order businesses with complex products, fluctuating demand, and varying cycle times.  These “high mix/low volume” operations can successfully implement lean principles with methodology and tools adapted to accommodate high levels of variation and complexity.  Understanding demand patterns and product segmentation as you design buffer strategies in your future state, you can eliminate waste, reduce lead times, and increase responsiveness to your customer.
