A review on benefits of implementing lean manufacturing

Authors(2) :-Jinal S Patel, Dr. Gajanand S. Patange

In competitive environment, lean manufacturing is necessary in every industry. Due to rapidly changing business environment the organizations are face challenges. Any organization whether manufacturing or service oriented, to survive may depend on its ability and continuously improvement in process. Therefore value adding process is necessary to achieve this perfection; hence implementing a lean manufacturing system is becoming a part of any type of organizations to sustain. Moreover, Lean manufacturing are widely used for eliminating various types of waste and increase profit of organization by making process more efficient. This paper gives the literature survey on lean tools to apply the lean manufacturing and presents benefits of implementing lean manufacturing.
