Lean. Do Japanese tehniques work in Romanian factories? [engleza]


LEAN is based on Toyota Production System, which was developed by Taiichi Ohno, Shigeo Shingo and Eiji Toyoda more than 40 years ago (1940-1975). The “Lean” term was used only after 1990. During last 40 years, it has been implemented by thousands of large companies all over the world and the reported results were outstanding. The question I try to answer is: can Lean strategy be used in Romania?
