Abstract

Today’s trends such as globalization, increased customer demands, and increased sustainability challenges have caused a paradigm shift, where the importance of designing lean- and sustainable modern manufacturing systems is realized by many companies. This study proposes a process of action steps using Value Stream Mapping method integrated with sustainability life cycle analysis and sustainability compliance index to assist in designing lean- and sustainable production systems. The developed process was validated through a case study to test the adopted tools and how they can capture and improve the lean- and sustainability levels. The current sustainability and lean levels were explored first, followed by analyzing and developing the future improved state. A roadmap of about 40 actions was suggested to the case company distributed on a one year time plan. The key contribution of this study is an applicable and generic process of action steps including several adopted tools from the lean-and sustainable product development fields to help manufacturing companies in creating roadmaps for more lean- and sustainable production systems.
