Abstract

Lean manufacturing has penetrated to most of the manufacturing sectors across the globe. It has been regarded as a remedy to survive and be competitive in this global market. Despite this, limited research has been done in Malaysia especially in the electrical and electronics industry. Although models and frameworks have been developed, a little has been done to assist the Malaysian electrical and electronics industry to implement lean manufacturing. This paper presents a framework that serves as a guideline to implement lean manufacturing in this industry. The framework was developed through case studies conducted in four electrical and electronics companies in Malaysia.
