Help is here in LEI?s Lean Lexicon, an illustrated glossary of key lean terms and concepts ranging from A3 Report to Yamazumi Board. The Lexicon provides definitions, examples, and lots of illustrations to clarify the special language lean thinkers use ? and sometimes confuse. Unlike most other business glossaries in print or online, the Lexicon is focused exclusively on lean thinking and lean production. It also makes abundant use of illustrations and examples, and was compiled with input from managers and engineers implementing lean. To make the book as useful as possible, LEI?s research included surveying the Lean Community about what concepts and terms were most confusing. Time-related terms were among those that topped the list of responses, so the Lexicon devotes several pages and illustrations to terms such as cycle time, takt time, and value-creating time. Other major entries include: Demand AmplificationEfficiencyFixed-Position Stop SystemHeijunkaInformation FlowInventory TurnsJidokaKanbanMaterial HandlingMuda, Mura, MuriPolicy DeploymentPull ProductionStandardized WorkToyota Production SystemSome terms that may be unfamiliar to new members of the Lean Community include: A3 ReportA-B ControlLean LogisticsLevel SellingPlan for Every PartPlan for Every PersonTakt ImageValue Stream ManagerThe 106-page Lexicon contains more than 145 definitions and 55 graphics, plus four appendices with additional terms, illustrations, and references.This is a critical tool in the Toyota Production System. ...
