lean warehouse

What Is Lean?

Lean methodology is a type of supply chain methodology focused on driving out waste in processes to improve business efficiency and maximizing value to the customer. It works to minimize inventory volumes without compromising service quality. The lean model strives to meet customer needs with as much precision and as little inventory as possible.
