Lean thinking is one of the methods that can bring productivity and customer’s demand improvement for manufacturing and service giving industries.
To arrive at the lean thinking productivity improvement and customer satisfaction of the sector (MEIs), intensive literature review and secondary data investigation were conducted.
The purpose of this paper is to understand the relationship between service quality, customer satisfaction and the loyalty of car owners.This is useful to basic metals and engineering industries in overcoming resource-limitation problems by eliminating wastes. Access to society journal content varies across our titles.In addition to this, the research didn’t take a case study on a specific firm as it is a literature review.The findings of this study emphasized that lean manufacturing is the key for wise resource utilization, which enables a firm for cost, lead time and waste reductions on one hand and productivity and flexibility improvements on the other. https://doi.org/10.1108/IJLSS-06-2017-0063 Download as .
