P. Latha | Inbasekaran S
Abstract: Population growth and Industrialization has resulted in global warming. This paper explores a framework of new business model such as Lean, Green Manufactur- ing and Zero waste technologies for the tanning sector. Green and Lean Manufacturing systems help to mini- mize environmental impact of manufacturing processes and products. An integrated Lean and Green manufac- turing system model, zero waste manufacturing is pro- posed as a solution for economically and environmen- tally sustainable manufacturing. The outcome of lean model results in reduced inventory levels, decreased material usage, optimized equipment, reduced need for factory facilities, increased production velocity, en- hanced production flexibility, eliminating waste throughout the production process, employee involve- ment, supply chain investment and so forth. A green manufacturing system consists of an Environ- mental management system that defines the corporate environmental policies and procedures such as ISO 14001, waste reducing techniques and results. It is re- ported that Lean manufacturing substantially reduces the facility footprint of production. Lean - Green Technology, Supply Chain Management, Chemical Leasing, Value Stream Mapping
