M Yogesh  | Dr M T Simon
Abstract: The barriers blocking the effectiveness in lean tools implementation to SMEs (Small & Medium Enterprises) in India are found from a case study. For increasing the productivity and efficiency, an integrated form of lean, green and six sigma techniques are suggested. Since SMEs in India form the back bone of economic growth, the productivity and efficiency are to be tuned up for sustained and continual improvement, quality of product is maintained steadily. This can be done by lean-six sigma techniques. A healthy environment has to be maintained hence a green technology is adopted. By an integrated form of lean, green six sigma techniques, products are manufactured at minimum cost, quality is maintained and manufacturing techniques are adopted so as to have minimum environmental damage. Priority is given to the needs and requirement of the customer so as to survive the global competition.
