When designing for maintainability/serviceability, there needs to be consideration of the trade-offs involved. In high reliability and low cost products or with consummable products, designing for serviceability or maintainability is not important. In the case of a durable good with a long life cycle or a product with parts subject to wear, maintainability or serviceability may be more important than initial product acquisition cost, and the product must be designed for easy maintenance. In these situations, basic design rules need to be considered such as:

The importance of employee participation and retention is paramount to a successful foundation and sustaining a LEAN culture. Although restructuring during a slow time may not be avoidable, it is the last resort when trying to transform into a Lean Manufacturing culture.

LEAN MANUFACTURING focuses on elements that seem elementary but specific tools and training can lead to valuable gains. Furthermore, the tools guide the team to reveal DFSS and waste removal opportunities AND improve existing value added processes (. speeding up an existing running machine with better maintenance program).

Lean tools can also be applied to transactional process as well as the DFSS  and DMAIC tools.

Value stream mapping is a key component of Lean Manufacturing. Most often a product value stream will consist of 95% or more non-value added time.

That means that most value streams begin with <5% of the total time devoted to adding value, or creating a feature that the customer is willing to pay for.

In many cases, there is business (or regulatory) time that complicates the map. Many companies must perform record keeping, audits, data entry, and maintain environmental, health, and safety compliance that take time in the value stream. While it is mandatory, it is still non-value added and should be challenged and streamlined to lean out within reason.

Many of the tools are taught to an entire workforce to develop a foundation of LEAN thinking in day to day operations. Some of the tools used are:

Strength and power are gained through this precise and detailed approach of gathering and analyzing data. Emphasis is placed on the idea that process speed is directly tied to excellence. Even the most minor opportunities for process improvement are detected and acted upon, enabling organizations to reach their highest levels of performance. Originally developed as a set of practices designed to improve manufacturing with lean tools, it now extends into other types of business processes as well. This lean solution accentuates several beliefs including:
