International Journal of Lean Enterprise Research (IJLER), Vol. 2, No. 3, 2018

Abstract: The manufacturing process also referred to as the transformation process (converting raw material into finished products) consumes huge amount of resources (Gupta et al., 2012), which severely affects sustainability. Extensive initiatives are sought to stand to the 'Make in India' proposal of the Indian Prime Minister, which are primarily people dependent. The present work seeks to investigate the enablers of people's work culture to implement the PM's commandments along with their interdependence and hierarchy levels in the Indian manufacturing sector for which the interpretive structural modelling (ISM) has been used. While understanding the contextual relationships among the identified enablers MICMAC analysis is used to categorise the identified enablers according to their importance in the organisation. The investigations reported that a twin enabler compettitude (competence + attitude) (Thareja, 2012) is the driving enabler for a zero waste culture paradigm to sustainable progression of the PM's initiative. Consistency is next reported as the dependent enabler for a healthy work culture on all other enablers.
