Lean handbook’s intention is to gather into a single reference the information related to lean tools, system and implementation. This book will enhance your understanding of the lean principles as a whole and give you a more holistic look at lean.
This comprehensive handbook covers all the topics included in all of our lean books. Written with contributions from a team of lean experts with years of experience in the field, it will be indispensible to anyone interested in implementing and sustaining a lean initiative.
Lean handbook was written to give a simple explanation of Lean for anyone to understand. It is meant for engineers, purchasing agents, company clerks, newspaper reporters, schoolteachers, or anyone else who wants to find out about Lean.
It is by no means a complete text on Lean, but does include an addendum that will point the way to further Lean knowledge for anyone who is interested.
Lean is a large area of expertise, and no book could possibly cover it all, but it is my hope that you will gain an understanding of Lean principals and be motivated to find out even more about this quiet revolution that is transforming worldwide manufacturing.
We should not forget that Lean handbook materials are from several lean practitioners with differing backgrounds and experience therefore, it serves as an ideal starting point for practitioners who want a holistic view of lean in general.
Finally Lean handbook is oriented towards:
• Those people who want to increase their Lean level and to understand better what Lean can offer.
• Those people interested to start with Lean philosophy.
• Lean Experts who are looking for a different way to teach or to communicate about Lean.
