Lean manufacturing in the age of the Industrial Internet

From Henry Ford's moving assembly line to Taiichi Ohno's Toyota production system, now known as lean production, manufacturers globally have constantly strived to make their operations better. The concept of lean, widely known for its tools to eliminate non-value added processes, has been at the forefront of management for the last five decades.

Lean production has enabled discrete manufacturers to transform their operations to be more efficient, more productive and their businesses to be more profitable. Whether it's frontline workers solving knotty problems, improved scheduling with just-in-time production, or stopping a production line as soon as there's an issue, lean has been about making physical changes to improve operations.
