Level Scheduling

 
A component of lean manufacturing; a method of production scheduling designed to reduce excess inventory and waiting periods by "leveling" each stage of the process (i.e., balancing each stage of the production process so that each has an equivalent amount of work, thus reducing bottlenecks and ensuring continuous flow).
