Elimination of waste is a key component of Lean and continuous improvement is a foundation of the lean philosophy. Lean, also known as the Toyota Production System, is largely common sense. Many companies have lost focus on the basics: keeping costs low, quality high, and the schedule on-time. Lean focuses us back on the basics by reducing or eliminating the eight types of waste - which commonly account for 95% of the total process time. Waste and inefficiency interfere with the 5% of time actually required to add value to a product or service as perceived by the customer. Lean applies to processes well beyond manufacturing including any discrete process such as financial services, services and administrative processes.
