Abstract: Lean production is stated as a business structure which helps to organise and manage product development, operations, suppliers, and consumer association. It is done with reduced human attempt, reduced area, reduced money, reduced material, and reduced time taken to manufacture parts with not many defects to fulfil consumer expectations, in contrast to the earlier arrangement of mass production. Sustainable manufacturing is stated as the building of manufactured parts which utilise procedures that are non-polluting, preserve energy and natural resources, and are cost effective and there is safety for employees, communities, and customers. ISM has been used to identify and summarise interconnection among specific variables that states a problem. It presents us with a method through which order may be set on the variables. It is followed by the MICMAC analysis which has been performed with the help of the specified variables. Financial factor and government rules and regulations' have been identified as variables having highest driving power.

Keywords: lean; interpretive structural modelling; micro; small and medium scale industries; MSMEs; MICMAC; sustainable manufacturing.
