Abstract

This paper focus on the key variables that limit the penetration ability of Lean's methodologies in industrial contexts, and thus should be considered prior to any Lean implementation. Based on a extensive literature review and experts focus group, it is presented aframework that organizes the main criteria to be considered and suggest a decision-making process in order to determine whether Lean methodologies should be implemented or not. The framework encompasses a holistic view that includes both a strategic and an operational dimension to be considered with a certain relative weight. The objective is to guide any decision maker through a process of evaluating whether Lean Management practices suit or not his organization's industrial context.
