Jokes apart, if you are interested in learning yet another process copied from manufacturing to software industry, here is a article on Lean, Agile, and Extreme Programming. Couple of years back i have seen advantages with couple of XP tools, peer programming and TDD which we used informally or to be precise w/o even knowing what is XP [Here is some literature on XP link1 link2]. Spending some time googling on lean s/w development brings back memories of how we used to appreciate tools from toyota prod system like poka-yoke, smed, u-cell,... I'd been more happy if i had sticked on to manufacturing domain, if not for C++ and mirage of fat paycheck.
