It’s almost impossible to talk about Lean without mentioning Toyota. They might use different terminology, but when it comes right down to it they have been the gold standard in Lean since the very beginning.
However, in working with Toyota for the last several years, some of these practices still manage to surprise us. That’s why we created the “10 Material Management Secrets We Learned at Toyota.”
Gerard Leone and I had the opportunity to give this presentation to our local APICS chapter last month, and we’re excited to bring it to the rest of the Lean community.
