“The Lean concept of continuous flow delivers big for Oregon’s nurseries,” reported Jon Bell in the May, 2019 edition of Digger magazine.
“Twenty people to five. A quarter-mile span to 20 feet. One week to 20 minutes. What do these all have in common? They are all some of the head-scratching efficiencies that individual nurseries across Oregon have realized since they’ve implemented one key Lean concept — continuous flow. In short, it means efficiently moving materials through a streamlined production process from start to finish.”
