By Jean-Baptiste Bouthillon, - Last updated: Tuesday, February 7, 2012 - Save & Share - Leave a comment

We have all learned that overproduction is muda, and that production must follow the takt of customer demand.

Is it important to level sales and give some stability to production or should we just adjust the production takt time ?
