A study on quality management systems to determine eventual benefits and implications related to the implementation of lean manufacturing has been done. The ISO 9000 Quality Management Standard was used to support the implementation process of a lean manufacturing system. Results showed a lack of capacity to disseminate local improvements to other parts of the production system. The ISO 9000 standards allowed the identification of critical processes and the integrated implementation of sub-systems related to each process. The impact of these results allowed the detection of weaknesses to decide eventual modifications in some processes. From the results obtained, one can conclude that a quality management system environment enhances a better comprehension in modelling and implementing a lean manufacturing system.
