Another way to increase efficiency is through Lean manufacturing, a strategy for eliminating non-value-added activities, such as defects, excess inventory, and overproduction. Lean manufacturing and computer-assisted scheduling share many of the same objectives. The second part of the research project seeks to determine whether or not there is a difference in production performance between users and nonusers of scheduling software from a lean manufacturing perspective.TPM a Total Productive Maintenance A lean manufacturing activity for standardizing maintenance and making it a built-in duty in every employeea#39;s daily routines (Cooper, Keif, aamp; Macro, 2007; Robinson, 2001).
