it was amazing

One of the best business books I’ve read which is in the form of a fictional factory that is losing money and how the character goes through implementing the lean methods. Though some of the dialogue gets into the weeds of different concepts the main ones seem to be 1) throughput, how efficiently are things going through the chain 2) the notion that the limiting factor in the assembly line is the weakest link. So the overall efficiency in the system is limited by the weakest link. 3) that efficient doesn’t mean using every resource all the time. Sometimes it makes sense for resources and people to idle since them doing work can lead to inventory which can create cost.
