ABSTRACT
Lean manufacturing, lean enterprise, lean production, or often simply "Lean", is a practice that considers the expenditure of resources for any goal other than the creation of value for the end customer to be wasteful, and thus a target for elimination. Lean can be described at different levels of abstraction: it can be defined as a philosophy, as a set of principles and as bundles of practices. The paper reveals to the challenges and barriers to be faced and overcome while implementing lean concept. Research method is the analysis and synthesis of scientific literature, logical, comparative and graphic representation. On the base of analysis, authors of this paper present major implementation barriers.
