All Lean Tools;Cell;Heijunka;Andon;5s;Muda;Pokayoke

I got several mails on Lean implementation and Lean idea.Guys Lean idea will be generated by you only.Let me tell you few methodologies by which you can define your ideas.
Basically Problem solving and Non value add reduction is basic requirement for Lean.
First-identify the problem
secondly-Solve it
Thirdly-Define it and present.

Go to this link for Lean thinking.
Well let me share few lean tools here...

Jidoka allows machines/processes to operate autonomously by shutting down automatically if an abnormality occurs. This prevents defective products from passing to the next process
“Pokayoke” refers to low-cost, reliable devices or innovations that:
- Prevent or detect errors by an employee or systems
- Detect defects in products and prevent further processing

Building Blocks for process discipline and control; Sort, Set-In Order, Shine, Standardize, Sustain.
A visual device (light) or pin-pan-pon that operators use to call attention to an abnormality. The use of this is to request immediate attention and action to the problem.

An arrangement of people, systems, items, and methods with the processing steps placed right next to each other (physically or digitally) in sequential order, through which parts are processed in a continuous flow.
Heijunka is the foundation of the Toyota Production system, and is the process of leveling and sequencing an operation.
KanbanA Kanban is a signal used by a downstream operation to request a material replenishment

MudaAny type of waste elements that add no value to the product: i.e. Waiting, Transporting, Over production, Excess Motion, Inventory Defects, Human Touches.
JITJust in time) theory of production characterized by (1) single piece flow, (2) producing according to TAKT time, (3) pulling of material from upstream process, keeping inventory at minimum, established levels.
Continuous, Incremental Improvement Of An Activity To Create More Value With Less Waste (Muda).
