Why is it important?

This study focuses on the application steps to be adopted for productivity improvement trough lean methods assessments in a product development company for the aeronautical industry. It also aims to provide insights for decision makers along the whole lean transformation patch, and to reduce the waste generation by eliminating the non–value–added activities resulted by a bad execution of the lean implementation tools and methods.


By deploying the proposed study, the assessed enterprise increased its overall lean engagement level and production outputs.
