This Article Says Lean is Just About Flow

It's factually incorrect to say Lean is only about "flow" and "waste."

Lean is also about quality. See the dual pillars of the Toyota Production System:
  • Just in time (flow)
  • Jidoka (quality at the source)
Six Sigma is not the only methodology that focuses on improving quality or reducing variation. Lean does this too.
