Besides those "lean core" chapters, the author has included chapters on how the accounting systems must change--so that conventional performance measures support rather than thwart the lean agenda. This book should be widely used in classrooms of business schools and industrial engineering departments--and should serve as a key source of lean training in manufacturing companies.
that can be used as a text book either for a course in engineering or business.
I have very much enjoyed reading the book in it entirety every time I teach this course.
It is useful for teachers and managers in manufacturing fields
