AndyN: Well I did ask about how to distinct it, I am sorry if that is a stupid Q.
After I did the post I accidentally found the link I posted, so I though I might as well share it. Yes it have some tables that could help to distinct them, but I though that perhaps some kind of scatter plot or alike could be made?
I don't have one, but I have found that if you try to make your own, it helps you to better understand the concepts.I am looking for some kind of graphic representation to give the overview.
Is the definitions by own hand or ?
"integral methodology of", plz what does that mean, I think I read somewhere that TPM is basic for Lean?
I thought that TQM was just fill with cheap overall management clich?? So more focus on a management, but have no real specific (statistical) tools?
Concerning Lean and BRP, I thought that lean was only a kaizen approach = "improvements", where BRP do radical fundamental change?
I do think of lean as related to only production, and I do think of Lean as the original narrow concept related to specific inventory approach (JIT) and/or a SCM concept that include the perspective of value for end customers. Though I think today everything that have a touch of optimization busines people call Lean.
