Lean Manufacturing, Organizational Success Factors
Critical success factors for successful implementation outcomes of lean manufacturing remain an important area of research. This paper examines the correlation between organizational factors, organizational structure, and job design with implementation outcomes of lean manufacturing that impact quality, waste, and delivery. The effect of three moderating factors, the length of time that lean manufacturing has been implemented, the company’s size, and the type of manufacturing, on the relationship between organizational factors and implementation outcomes of lean manufacturing is also studied. The results of this research study indicate that except for the lack of a relationship between level of formalization with waste and delivery outcomes, there are significant positive correlations between organizational factors and implementation outcomes of lean manufacturing. The results also indicate that the moderating factors do affect the relationship between independent and dependent variables.
