In an ever-changing environment, supply chains face countless risks generated by different sources of uncertainty. The adoption of lean management initiatives has been recognized as a viable and effective way for dealing with these uncertainties. However, since constant and rapid change of variables affecting supply chains risks nullifying or diminishing the potential benefits of lean initiatives, identification of proper lean practices emerges as essential to address their successful implementation. On these premises, this study proposes a model linking lean management practices with different forms of supply chain uncertainty. The model, built upon an analysis of the literature, is designed to help managers and practitioners in identifying and prioritizing lean actions to address issues within their supply chains.

Abstract

In an ever-changing environment, supply chains face countless risks generated by different sources of uncertainty. The adoption of lean management initiatives has been recognized as a viable and effective way for dealing with these uncertainties. However, since constant and rapid change of variables affecting supply chains risks nullifying or diminishing the potential benefits of lean initiatives, identification of proper lean practices emerges as essential to address their successful implementation. On these premises, this study proposes a model linking lean management practices with different forms of supply chain uncertainty. The model, built upon an analysis of the literature, is designed to help managers and practitioners in identifying and prioritizing lean actions to address issues within their supply chains.
