ALEMI, M.A.  and  AKRAM, R.. Measuring the leanness of manufacturing systems by using fuzzy TOPSIS: A case study of the 'Parizan Sanat' company. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2013, vol.24, n.3, pp.166-174. ISSN 2224-7890.

The implementation of lean manufacturing concepts has had a significant impact on various industries. Many companies around the world have attempted to implement lean manufacturing, but the lack of an obvious understanding of lean measurement and its performance has caused its implementation to fail. This paper presents an innovative approach by using fuzzy TOPSIS to measure the production leanness of manufacturing systems, as a paradigm. This approach is applied to the Parizan Sanat company.
