Mass production is designed with buffers - more inventory, space, workers — to make it function. The objectives of lean production are to strip away these buffers, to reduce costs, and be involved more systematically in production. This is accomplished by a series of connected practices. Just in time (JIT) or synchronous production minimizes buffers by making only what is needed at the amount needed at the necessary time. Lean Manufacturing in the Automobile sector ensures pull manufacturing across the entire supply chain through kanban, supermarkets, work standardization, jidoka, total quality management, etc. for doing it right the first time. The assembly lines work as per takt time – the rate at which the automobiles are being pulled in the market, with minimal changeover time from one product to another.
