Abstract / Description

Lean production is regarded as systematic solution for identifying and eliminating waste through continuous improvement of manufacturing processes to meet customers' requirements. Due to rising environmental concerns and the significant environmental impact of companies operations, issues such as environmental management and green production are on board agendas. In essence, green production seeks to reduce the environmental impacts of business processes. In order to examine green production, an original equipment manufacturer in the supply chain of tractor manufacturing industry is selected for this work to enable a focus on lean production aspects and its specific requirements to evaluate a company-specific production system (XPS). The results suggest that the company utilizes six lean-green production criteria including suitable and green packaging, quality improvement, waste reduction, environmental pollution reduction, transport management and additional transportation reduction, and cost reduction. Furthermore, continuous improvement and integrated auditing are selected as two critical and fundamental elements with the highest ranks, regarding the relationships between the XPS elements and lean-green production criteria.
