Abstract

Based on a sample of 317 manufacturing companies, this study adopts a structural equation modeling approach to test the relationships between bundles of lean practices and performance. The results of our analyses suggest that there is a sequence of lean practice implementation that permits to improv...

description Based on a sample of 317 manufacturing companies, this study adopts a structural equation modeling approach to test the relationships between bundles of lean practices and performance. The results of our analyses suggest that there is a sequence of lean practice implementation that permits to improve all the dimensions of operational performance. This study contributes to the academic literature and to practitioners by supporting the idea that a company - to achieve manufacturing excellence - should implement a "sand-cone" of lean practices to obtain a "sand-cone" of cumulative performance.
