Heijunka is the Japanese term for leveling. ItÂ is a technique for reducing unevenness (Mura) which in turn reduces waste (Muda). It is crucial to the development of production efficiency inÂ Lean manufacturing. The goal is to produce goods at a constant rate so that further processing may also be carried out at a constant and predictable rate.Â
