+The process of Lean design can be used in the manufacturing field. The purpose of Lean is to reduce waste in a system to make it more effective. It was found that the definition of Lean is drifting but Lean is generally applicable to product development processes. The review questions whether or not Lean can be used in 'white collar' areas. Lean has traditionally been used in manufacturing. To incorporate Lean into product development, the entire process must be re-engineered to be better understood. To apply Lean there will have to be strong leadership and further research on applying Lean design to product design.

+Writing a summary is a process:
+===============================
+Step 1.
+ Read the article... more than once.
+ First time:
+ Read for a general sense of what is there and what it is about
+ Don't worry about taking notes
+ Don't re-read stuff
+Step 2.
+ Read it again. and again and again.
+ Write notes, highlight, highlight
+ Looking for :
+ General Topic - What is it about?
+ Main idea - Authors arguments, what are they trying to communicate
+ * specific examples of these ideas
+
+Step 3.
+ Write a one sentence summary of each paragraph in order.
+
+Step 4.

+ Proof Read
+ ----------
+
+Summaries
+=========
+What must we know?
+* General Topic
+* Background content
+ * Define Lean
+ * Explain manufacturing usage
+ * Example: Toyota manufacturing system
+* Research Question
+* Scope and Methodology
