Lean Global Effect Evaluation

Samah Elrhanimi, Laila El Abbadi and Abdellah Abouabdellah

This paper discusses the effect of the application of Lean manufacturing on the global performance of a company. In fact, Lean manufacturing was introduced as a system for the company to reduce its costs, to satisfy the need of its customers, and to reduce the staff workload. It is in this context that our paper proposes a dashboard called Lean Global Effect Evaluation (We choose for it an acronym LGEE) ; evaluating the effect of Lean manufacturing on the company’s global performance. The idea is to associate for every type of waste one or several indicators. These indicators are classified according to the type of the performance that they join. Indicators come from the definition of Lean manufacturing given by Taiichi Ohno, which is the total elimination of the waste. Indicators are divided on two types; there are those inspired by the literature and those inspired by indicators used in a Moroccan company from the automotive field. We added two types of waste called “informational waste” and “membership waste”. To validate the LGEE we proposed a validation method.
