Lean Manufacturers’ Transcendence to Green Manufacturing
Abstract: Lean manufacturers were studied to determine if such manufacturers were transcending to a Green state as a result of their commitment to Lean production. The Lean manufacturers were all companies that received site visits from the Shingo Prize team between 2000 and 2005 as part of the evaluation process for the Prize. This sample included 120 individual manufacturing plants, from which 47 usable surveys were received. The data from this sample was compared to similar data published by Melnyk, Sroufe, and Calantone (2003) regarding the Greenness of 1100 general manufacturing plants in the US.

Parallel Models for Lean and Green Operations [PDF]
Abstract: Many leading companies have implemented Lean Manufacturing Programs which yield increased efficiency, reduced costs, improved customer response time, and more. Others have adopted “Green” Programs resulting in reduced energy consumption, waste generation, and hazardous materials usage. Models for both Lean and Green systems all include management systems, waste identification, and implementation of waste reducing techniques (WRT) to achieve desired business results. Studying known Lean companies, we confirmed that strength of management system correlates with WRT implementation which correlates with business results for both Lean and Green Programs. Our results indicate that Lean and Green Programs lead to improved business results.
