The world today is live to global warming, ecology and resources. It is, however, not a new phenomenon. Hindu living has always been live to such objectives even on the philosophical front. Any such alignment is vital, even at the business front as also at higher level.
As Foundrymen, we have the onus of supplying castings speedier, while maintaining profits, and cutting down (use of) resources. All cost savings are transformed with resource (utlization) cutting. Thus, if processes and methods lean (align/support) on efficiencies (Lean thinking), in a committed and engrossed (i.e. Hindi ‘Lean’) way, then it must become “Total” Lean. Such is the demand of tomorrow’s foundries – no wastages. Thus to avoid excess weight and the wait the new paradigm is in going lean.
