What is Lean Management?

What are Lean Principles? (Suaju is based on the following principles integrated into Suaju's workings)

·          Understanding Customer Value: Value must be externally focused. Only what your customers perceive as value is important.

·         Value Stream Analysis: Once you understand the value that you deliver to your customers, you need to analyze all the steps in your business processes to determine which ones actually add value. If an action does not add value, you should consider changing it or removing it from the process.

·          Flow: Instead of moving the product from one work centre to the next in large batches, production should flow continuously from raw materials to finished goods in dedicated production cells.

·          Pull: Rather than building goods to stock, customer demand pulls finished goods through the system. Work is not performed unless the part is required downstream.

·         Perfection: As you eliminate waste from your processes and flow product continuously according to the demands of your customers, you will realize that there is no end to reducing time, cost, space, mistakes and effort.
