Abstract

This review paper presents the identification of barriers in the implementation of a lean manufacturing system in small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Growth of SMEs is one of the most significant indicators of positive economic growth of a nation. In today’s business scenario, competitiveness of small and medium-size organizations is determined by their flexibility in meeting and responding quickly to the changing customer needs and supplying high quality products at lower cost as per demand. There is a cut throat competition in the SMEs and all are working hard to achieve their objectives by enhancing their capabilities through application of automation and innovative concepts such as, Lean Manufacturing System (LMS), Total Quality Management (TQM) and Just in Time (JIT). Lean Manufacturing (LM) is a rapidly growing culture in manufacturing organizations. Lean Manufacturing is defined as an effective tool, used for the elimination of all kinds of waste in a production process, efficiently. Implementation of new management philosophies and strategies arise always difficult and uncertain because of the inevitable change. Organizations therefore have to develop its strategies as per the customer’s requirement. Implementation of lean in large and medium-size manufacturing organizations resulted in reduction in material handling cost, reduction of manufacturing lead time and improvement in product quality with other benefits. An effective lean manufacturing programme includes tools and techniques for identification of wastes, commitment from management, participation of employee and their training and education.
