Abstract [en]

Nowadays it is a widely hold belief that Lean is universal solution that can be implemented in various types of industries. Nevertheless we can still observe that Lean is not common, for example, in precast concrete industry where only a few known manufacturers have tried to approach Lean. Lean has its roots in the assembly line industries and this may cause implications when applying it in other type of industries.

Relatively limited attention has been paid to context specific issues in the implementation in other industries. This is something worth considering and which need to be addressed further.  

The background of this study was to further highlight the relatively limited application of Lean in the manufacture of precast concrete. The objective of this study is to identify factors in the production processes, in precast concrete fabrication, that affect the introduction of Lean.

The starting point has been to identify the characteristics of the production process of Strängbetong in Kungsör. Thereby achieve better understanding how Lean can be applied. The findings indicate four aspects to be considered for application of Lean: holistic approach, production layout, shared resources and pull system.
