A Brief History of Lean Manufacturing
Taiichi Ohno, a Japanese industrial engineer, better known as the father of the Toyota Production System, noticed that the more inventory a company had, the less likely they had what they needed. Using some of the lean manufacturing we know today, but were revolutionary at the time, Ohno devised a list of seven wastes as part of his system.
This list is used throughout the manufacturing world today to improve working standards, cycle times, and ultimately increase the profitably of a company by eliminating waste.
