ABSTRACT
To be successful in today's increasingly time-sensitive and competitive markets, businesses need manufacturing processes that are fast, flexible, and adapt quickly to change. By means of a survey conducted in the Indian manufacturing industries discusses the most important parameters of lean manufacturing and flexibility and the significant benefits that were accrued in flexible and lean manufacturing operations. The flexibility is recognized as an important feature in manufacturing. However, the extent of such technology applications varies from industry to industry and has met various degrees of success. The manufacturing companies that are changing processes towards hybrid flexible lean manufacturing (FLM), and focusing on company strategy for cost reduction through eliminating wastages are remain to sustain in this competitive world. This paper describes the development and comparison of characteristics framework by means of which organizations can effectively integrate and change processes towards FLM. The data for this survey were collected through interviews, questionnaire and archival sources.
