History of Lean

W. Edwards Deming in the early to mid 1900’s proposed that business processes should be analyzed and measured to identify sources of variations that cause products to deviate from customer requirements. He recommended that business processes be placed in a continuous feedback loop so that managers can identify and change the parts of the process that need improvements. As a teacher, Deming created a rather simple diagram to illustrate this continuous process, commonly known as the PDCA cycle for Plan, Do, Check, Act*:

PLAN: Design or revise business process components to improve results

DO: Implement the plan and measure its performance

CHECK: Assess the measurements and report the results to decision makers

ACT: Decide on changes needed to improve the process
