This paper explores a balanced system of standardization and system control that can be seen as "the new standardization." It creates an interlocking system of measures and standards that will move a company toward a profitable future. By implementing this system, a company will be able to: successfully implement lean on a daily basis, use standards to control performance at all levels of the organization, create a foundation for all training, and prepare for continuous improvement.
