An article in the Manufacturer.com discusses how the lean approach used in manufacturing can be applied to information.
The article starts off by pointing out how companies have invested in expensive systems,
only to discover that getting the information they want exactly when and where they want it actually becomes a barrier in process improvement initiatives.
It lists some points that information system must meet in order to be called ‘lean’.
- Consistent in access method/path; in presentation form and terminology
We are going to see how we can apply these points in a new project.
