“Converting a classic batch-and-queue production system to continuous flow with effective pull by the customer will double labor productivity all the way through the system (for direct, managerial, and technical workers, from raw materials to delivered product) while cutting production throughput times by 90 percent and reducing inventories in the system by 90 percent as well.”
James P. Womack, Lean Thinking: Banish Waste and Create Wealth in Your Corporation

“Dedicated product teams in direct dialogue with customers always find ways to specify value more accurately and often learn of ways to enhance flow and pull as well.”
James P. Womack, Lean Thinking: Banish Waste And Create Wealth In Your Corporation

“How can performance be improved? Sweat and longer hours are not the answer but will be employed if no one knows how to work smarter.”
James P. Womack, Lean Thinking: Banish Waste And Create Wealth In Your Corporation
