Abstract

Implementing lean manufacturing is a complex and everlasting task. The workers involving
in production processes are the pivot of the lean manufacturing implementation. Training is known as
a vehicle to assist the implementation process. Despite awareness of the training importance, so far, a
little is available to assist to organise an efficient training. This paper summarises the overview of lean
manufacturing and discuss the importance of human resource within lean implementation process. It
then proposes a training framework for production workers in lean environment.
