Since the beginning of lean production there have been two implementation waves. The first one failed as manufacturing companies implemented methods of lean production isolated from each other, whereas in the second wave these companies learned from this experience. Ever since then lean production has been used for production organization and waste reduction but has not evolved, even though markets are more demanding due to individualization and volatility. Digitalization offers methods to adapt lean production to such aggravated market conditions by expanding its abilities. Therefore, digitalization has the potential to initiate a third wave within the philosophy of lean production.
