Lean manufacturing and management principles are finding application in R&D and quality control labs around the world as companies seek to improve overall efficiency and keep up with ever-changing markets.
However, a lean approach can involve the introduction and application of a variety of methods, tools, and processes to the workplace, which come hand-in-hand with new acronyms and terminology. For example, terms such as Andon, Jidoka, or Muda may not be familiar, particularly for those who are newcomers to lean principles. To help improve understanding of the terminology and ensure smooth application of lean principles in the laboratory environment, METTLER TOLEDO has developed the Lean Lab Glossary.
