We know that the "Lean" concepts came from "Toyoto Production System (TPS)" .Hence believe that they are meant for Manufacturing business only. In earlier days, people believed that its only for Automobile business. Since last few years, "Lean" has shown great effect not only in other manufacturing areas but also in service industry. The concept do not have any specific technological base but its mainly Logical thinking and Common Sence.
"Lean" talks only about 3M - Muda | Mura |Muri and offer conceptual ideas (known as Lean Tool set) to reduce or remove them. Muda- Operational Non Value Adding steps, Mura - is Unevenness in any Process and Muri- is Overburden on any Resource. Nothing else.
