Abstract:

Lean manufacturing is a strategic tool, which is used to reduce waste and to improve the efficiency of an organization. Indian MSME’s are struggling to implement these techniques. The aim of the study is to investigate the various critical issues faced by the Indian MSMEs while implementing lean. A questionnaire containing 29 problems under five categories was prepared and sent to 200 MSME’s all over India. Eighty two companies responded and their responses were analyzed using the IBM SPSS statistics 20 package to find the rating on various issues. Ratings were also obtained from three lean consultants and compared to find the closer value. This enables to have better understanding on critical issues for successful implementation.
