gained popularity in several waves. The last three decades have been
filled with numerous attempts to apply these concepts in companies.
However, this has only been partially successful. The roots of lean
production can be traced back to Toyota-s just-in-time production.
This concept, which according to Womack-s, Jones- and Roos-
research at MIT was employed by Japanese car manufacturers,
became popular under its international names “lean production",
“lean-manufacturing" and was termed “Schlanke Produktion" in
Germany. This contribution shows a review about lean production in
Germany over the last thirty years: development, trial & error and
implementation as well.},
