Abstract

Lean production is a term that is mentioned repeatedly in many of the 100 Companies Project case studies, especially in the manufacturing industry. Companies that already had experience with lean production were particularly open to resource efficiency measures. And vice versa: companies that had participated in resource efficiency projects were then interested in tackling the topic of lean production. There is in fact a large overlap between lean production and resource efficiency, both in objectives and methods for their implementation in company operations.
