Lean Manufacturing (LM) is an advanced manufacturing philosophy used for the improvement of organizational performance in a competitive business environment. The primary objective of lean manufacturing is to eliminate the waste (non-value added activities) from the production processes. Lean manufacturing consists of several lean parameters such as top management commitment, people management, process management, just-in-time production, total quality management, total productive maintenance and continuous improvement. The impacts of each of the lean parameters on the organizational performance need to be verified.
