The new Lexicon, first published in January 2003, is 125 pages, containing 61 illustrations and 193 key terms from A3 Report to Yokoten. The Lexicon already covers such key lean enterprise terms as jidoka, kanban, kaizen, lean consumption, lean production, lean enterprise, pull production, standardized work, takt time, Toyota Production System, and value-stream mapping. It also has a simple, one-page guide to pronouncing Japanese terms. The new terms are: • Dashboard (strategy deployment) • Fulfillment Stream (supply stream) • Look-Ask-Model-Discuss- Act Cycle (product and process development) • Lean Product and Process Development (product and process development) • Trade-off Curves (product and process development) • True North (strategy deployment) • Useable Knowledge (product and process development) These terms were updated with new information or graphics: • Chief Engineer (product and process development) • Lean Thinking • Set-based Concurrent Engineering (product and process development) • Strategy Deployment (strategy deployment) “Like the past three editions, the Fourth Edition of the Lean Lexicon incorporates improvement ideas from our customers,” said Michael Brassard, president of LEI’s Lean Learning Materials. “We continue to welcome suggestions from managers, executives, engineers – everyone in the expanding Lean Community of manufacturing and service companies.” Unlike most other business glossaries in print or online, the Lexicon is focused exclusively on lean production and lean management.
