Why is it important?

The objective of this paper is to demonstrate a research method focused on lean performance measurement assessments from previous works, summarizing and organizing the existing evaluation standards in a way to allow different industrial segments to replicate the screening steps for a literature review construction.


As a result, the existing lean performance measurements and methods from the last 23 years were refined in order to highlight opportunities and insights for future researches to be developed on the lean field.
