While some case studies were evaluated successfully, others faced with big challenges. Actually, lean was applied in different ways due to types and size of industry or organization. This paper would present an lean implementation process, in which lean tools are integrated in simultaneously. Requirements on system manufacturing capacity should be met, so necessary resources would be determined. Manufacturing layout and work flows would be created smoothly. The lean implementation process was applied in some case studies in garment industry with small and medium size, which show the efficiency and effectiveness of the lean technology in the practice systems. The research shows the good results on some performance key indexes such as productivity, ability to satisfy the orders and good working environment.</p> 2021-02-21T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
