Lean

Lean excellence, often simply called "lean", is a systematic method for the elimination of waste ("Muda") within a business system. Lean also takes into account waste created through overburden ("Muri") and waste created through unevenness in work loads ("Mura"). Working from the perspective of the customer who consumes a product or service, "value" is any action or process that a customer would be willing to pay for.
