Lean Math

There is a new Lean blog out there and its name certainly implies that it is different than the rest.  Lean Math just launched last week but already has several interesting posts.  Here is what the authors have to say:

We know what you’re thinking, “Lean Math?!” Now, that’s a subject that evokes passion in the heart of every lean practitioner…right?

But, the truth is effective lean transformations require some level of math, whether it’s the often deceptively simple takt time calculation, sizing kanbans, calculating process capability, or anything in between. It’s hard to get away from math. There is no such thing as math-free lean and certainly not math-free six sigma!

Lean MathTM is not intended to be some purely academic study and it does not pretend to be part of the heart and soul of lean principles. Rather, it’s a tool and a construct for thinking. Here we want to integrate lean math theories and examples with experimentation and application.

Here are some of our first blog posts:

  • Time
  • Cycle Time
  • Square Root Law
  • Min/Max Cut Theorem
  • Coefficient of Variation

You should check it out at Lean Math
