What are the 5 Lean Principles?

If you want to introduce lean techniques follow the process below:

1. Specify value from the standpoint of the end customer.

2. Map the value stream for each product family, eliminating whenever possible those steps that do not create value.

3. Make the value-creating steps so the product will flow smoothly toward the customer.

4. As flow is introduced, let customers pull value from the next upstream activity.

5. Seek perfection  Begin the process again and continue it until a state of perfection is reached in which perfect value is created with no waste.

These are the 5 lean principles.
