[en] To continue to survive in a difficult economic environment, in the literature we talk about the benefits and contributions of Lean thinking.
This approach aims to improve the performance of the organization, to maximize the value of products and services for customers, to make the company more agile and more efficient in its operations...
However, does this approach concretely become widespread among the organizations of our regions?
Concerning the organizations that have implemented Lean thinking, what is their level of development or maturity in the approach?
What are the main brakes and key success factors for the development of it in Lean organizations?
What are the main barriers faced by companies which did not wish to be involved in Lean thinking?
In order to achieve this study successfully among the organizations of the manufacturing sector in the Province of Liège, we have developed a questionnaire which allows to supply answers to the questions asked. Moreover, it assesses the development of the approach in applying the practices, principles, concepts and tools of Lean methodology.
We have also established a representative sample of the sector and area fixed.
The results of the study show that it is very rarely applied in the manufacturing sector of the Province of Liège, although this sector has been hard hit.
The study evaluates a trend of the overall development level of Lean thinking in the manufacturing sector in.the Province of Liège and offers a diagnosis which allows to identify the strengths and weaknesses in the development.
For the companies that have implemented Lean approach, the survey highlights among the key success factors and obstacles identified in the literature those which favor or hinder the most the development of this approach.
In addition, a SWOT analysis has been conducted on the basis of interviews. This analysis confirms the results of the study, reveals other key success factors and other obstacles.
For enterprises which did not implement the Lean approach, the study identifies a trend for brakes which are specific to large companies and another one for the obstacles which are specific to manufacturing SMEs in the Province of Liège.
