This paper discusses the analysis of losses and wastage in cement manufacturing process and its rectification using lean tools and methodology mathematically. Employee's psychology varies with every new management planning, so psychology towards new lean management planning is also analysed through questioner to correlate lean management planning satisfaction to stress, job satisfaction, and safety improvement individually using Karl Pearson correlation in SPSS software. The data has been collected from various cement industries at each stage and analysed. Lean management planning resulted in a reduction of wastage in the transportation of mining, over processing and increase in efficiency of the separator in grinding mills, kiln quality control, packing plant efficiency improvement. The correlation analysis also resulted in stress reduction, improvement in job satisfaction and safety conditions with new lean management planning.
