This book reports four structural equation models (SEM) for quantifying the relationship between the most important lean manufacturing (LM) practices applied to the manufacturing industry. The SEMs are evaluated using 220 responses to a survey applied to manufacturing companies applying LM principles in the production system and are related to: distribution and maintenance, production process and quality system, supply chain and quality, and an integrator model. The findings identify the most important activities for every LM practices and how they are related. These relationship' values will help administrators, managers, engineers to focus their efforts on these most important activities, facilitating the decision-making process.
Identifies the most important activities in lean manufacturing tools Shows how to quantify lean manufacturing tools using Structural Equation Models Evaluates the structural equation models with empirical and real data obtained from 220 manufacturing industries Autorentext Dr Jorge Luis García Alcaraz has a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering, a master's degree in industrial engineering sciences, a PhD in Industrial Engineering Sciences, a PhD in Innovation in Product Engineering and Industrial Process, a PhD in Sciences and Industrial Technologies and a Post doctorate in manufacturing process.
