It’s pretty tough to cut through the buzzwords to figure out what this “lean software” does.
“It creates a consistent view of demand for Lean calculation, kanban sizing and control, daily resource planning for labor and machine resources and ‘what if’ scenario planning and analysis. It also serves as a catalyst for Lean implementation and training efforts resulting in consistent methods, data collection and standardization, and analytic tools.”
