    Lean is the elimination of non value adding activities in processes. it consist of Just-in- time (Kanban + continous improvement), Heijunka (level production and cross trained workers), Jidoka (error proofing and error prevention), 5S, TPM etc.
    Basically, it entails reducing waste (unnecessary motion, defect, complexity, overprocessing, transportation, inventory, waiting, untapped skills etc) in processes.
    Hope it helps
