Lean Management

Lean management originated from the Toyota Production System. The goal of Toyota was to reduce the cost of business while eliminating waste. On this basis, lean management is a long-term approach to work that systematically seeks small, incremental changes to improve efficiency and quality. Lean management in China faces unique but solvable challenges.

With the continuous improvement of the global industrial chain, embracing lean management in China allows businesses and manufacturers to increase competitiveness. Chinese firms face deteriorated management efficiency as they break away from former state‐controlled mass production. Lean management helps increase flexibility in manufacturing, enhance manufacturing research, and prevent overproduction.
