Driving elements/concepts of lean

1. Give an overview of the driving elements/concepts of lean. (This section should be 300-400 words in length.)

2. Select one of the following four topics: Jidoka, Kanban, Heijunka, or Keiretsu. Discuss its expected impact on performance. You must use relevant dimensions from the competitive dimensions model (page 28-32) as well as specific information from the Toyota case to support your claims. (This section will make up the majority of your project.)
