Abstract

Previous researches in manufacturing operations concluded that the best opportunities for improvement are achieved when the manufacturing system is designed from the top down and from customer to the supplier. The most effective manufacturing system designs is the one that consider the whole product value stream rather than just shop-floor activities. Although the lean deployment is a critical success factor, yet there is no holistic or a step by step approach to the deployment process. The lack of a framework that provides a systematic practical approach to lean implementation is increasingly becoming an issue for manufacturing organisations and professionals. This paper presents an attempt to develop a framework that can be used to develop a lean manufacturing system in small and medium enterprises (SME). The framework is based on lean six sigma principles of efficiency, speed, reduced waste and high quality.
