    Kaizen is only one tool in the “Lean” toolbox.

    Lean mfg is both a “journey” and “the destination” where as kaizen it a tool for that “journey”.
    An analogy might be:

    “I want to go on holiday and travel to the ultimate tourist destination.” “I want to establish my company as a lean manufacturer.”
    “I want to fly first class on my trip.” “I want to use a series of kaizen’s to lean out my plant inorder to become lean.”
    Does that help???
