Lean delivery

A term that includes Lean production, plus all the other steps required to deliver the desired value from producer to customer. This often involves a number of different organizations. 

Most supply value streams, whether for manufactured goods or for services such as health care or travel, are even more complicated than consumption streams. They take up a lot of suppliers' time and resources and harmonize very poorly with consumption streams, causing customer frustration and a lot of waste.
