Lean manufacturing or lean production, often simply “lean”, is a systematic method for the elimination of waste (“Muda”) within a manufacturing system. Lean also takes into account waste created through overburden (“Muri”) and waste created through unevenness in work loads (“Mura”). Working from the perspective of the client who consumes a product or service, “value” is any action or process that a customer would be willing to pay for.

Lean principles are derived from the Japanese manufacturing industry. The term was first coined by John Krafcik in his 1988 article, “Triumph of the Lean Production System,” based on his master’s thesis at the MIT Sloan School of Management.

Lean manufacturing project is relating to enhancing the productivity of the CNC clusters, by implementation of various Lean manufacturing tools and techniques.
Under the government scheme “Make in India, Zero defects and Zero effects”, National productivity council and quality council of India are the two mentoring government organizations
Educating MSMEs to implement Lean manufacturing techniques. The 80% subsidy is provided by the government of India for implementing lean manifesting techniques by applying different tools such as 5-S, JIT, Kaizen, and others.

In this regard PESU is the first Educational Institution empaneled by NPC. In this view, PESU is educating and motivating MSMEs to implement lean manufacturing techniques.
