An Industrial Engineering Life
The purpose of this blog is to present news articles and commentary on the following topics: the Toyota Production System, Lean Manufacturing (aka Lean Production or Lean Enterprise), along with new applications of lean such as Lean Healthcare. I also hope that this site will prompt discussion and learning among lean manufacturing practitioners and students (we're all on a lifelong lean learning journey). Thanks for visiting.

A Lean Journey Blog Spot
My Lean Journey started about 10 years ago with a career change from R&D to manufacturing. I started this Blog   to share lessons along the way and chronicle "My Lean Journey in the Quest for True North". With some much empahsis on continuous improvement we often miss the true teaching of TPS (Thinking People System). Lean is a "Learning" process so sharing your lessons and opinions are welcome. The content within this blog represents my opinion, not that of my employer or anyone else. Forum
Sample Posting - I have just started value stream mapping the processes through an extended organization. I like the concept of open source software, which seems to fit in well with the philosophy of Lean and came across Open Office Draw. Is anyone else is interested in this approach .....

Lean Reflections
I've been fascinated with the emergence of lean manufacturing since the early 1980s. Part of lean is reflecting, thus the title of this blog. Though I'm not a practitioner, I see opportunities for lean everywhere. You'll see my observations here and in my comments on other great blogs.

Lean, six-sigma & quality plus all the stuff in between.
