Optimisation is the order of today. While we have low access to (residual) materials, the demands are all time high and growing- because of materialism. To answer this paradox, there is an accent on Miniaturisation. We require mean people to answer the provision of wherewithal for such requisites.
'Mean People': The term has many meanings. This work identifies three of these (Exhibit I).
Well! slowly, with industrialization the man has resolved issues of competencies and resources and became mean’er of the other kind. He was no longer considerate on mother nature and people. He had certainly lost the mean(ing) somewhere.
Today, it is time that the lost Mean’ing is researched. Say, our productivity stays at the mean: of production while lowering the consequences of production. Both – the men and the processes they control – additionally be made lean. The process ‘mean’ indeed should be trained to stick at lower levels, with continuous upgradation of technologies, concurrently reducing the exploitation of resources, all by becoming lean.
But first, change is required to influence the operators, for it is he who may become mean on our technologies so as to be initially lean, and finally green. If we have lean people and mean people, surely they would be transforming their industries to the pink cheeks, while they transform themselves as our coveted people – the green people.
