flow vs other manufacturing concepts

flow is often confused with Lean and Traditional manufacturing concepts


Many are complementary to flow  while others can cause confusion, leading people to believe they’ve already ‘done flow’ or ‘done Lean.’ However, they haven’t always seen the tangible bottom-line benefits of their investment.
