Title Factors of successful lean practices in manufacturing : a Malaysian perspective in electrical and electronics industry / Gooi Ewe Peng
Abstract This paper aimed to study the factors affecting the success of lean practices and performance of manufacturing company in northern Peninsula Malaysia. The study helps company to know the factors affecting the successful implementation of lean practices. After reviewing several literatures, it was observed that the factors affecting successful lean practices can be grouped into three categories: tools, management commitment and culture/thinking. Based on these concepts, researcher has proposed a theoretical framework of lean practices and operational indicators. A survey was conducted among manufacturing staffs and all necessary data and information were collected via questionnaire. Interviews were also conducted to strengthen the quantitative data collected. However, the study involved mainly quantitative analyses aimed at answering the specific research questions framed in this paper. The results indicated that lean practices may not increase the performance of the manufacturing company which was explained by researcher. Some recommendation for future research to validate or revoke the theoretical framework was suggested after consolidation of the research. Overall the project took six months to complete.
