Lean Industry 4.0—Wastes Versus Technology Framework

Krzysztof Ejsmont , Bartłomiej Gładysz


Both lean management and Industry 4.0 are obviously important in practices of modern manufacturing companies. Lean management a is well-known and deeply researched approach while Industry 4.0 is also well recognized, but still relatively new with a big part of the theory and practice to be developed, validated, verified and applied. However, Industry 4.0 gains more and more interest of both researchers and practitioners and is very important for manufacturing and other industries. The main goal of this paper is to analyze synergies, or deficits, of lean management and Industry 4.0. For this purpose, a lean framework for waste typology was combined with the Industry 4.0 potential to decrease those wastes. It was also analyzed if some properties of Industry 4.0 may lead to increase in some types of waste. Each type of waste was analyzed to consider its possible decrease and increase through the application of Industry 4.0 grounding of field practice and literature analysis.
