This paper provides an overview of the principles, methodologies, and benefits associated with LSCM. The concept of lean originated in manufacturing, with the Toyota Production System serving as a pioneering model for eliminating waste and improving efficiency. In the context of supply chain management, lean principles emphasize the identification and elimination of non-value-added activities, such as excess inventory, overproduction, defects, and unnecessary transportation or motion. By implementing lean practices, organizations can achieve a range of benefits, including reduced lead times, lower operating costs, improved quality, and increased customer satisfaction. Furthermore, lean supply chains are more agile and responsive to changes in customer demand, market conditions, and supply chain disruptions.
