Abstract: During the past two decades, lean production (LP) has been finding wide adoption for improving the processes. Despite its widespread adoption, LP is yet to find application in household appliances manufacturing industry. In order to overcome this deficiency partially, the research reported in this paper was carried out. This research was carried out in two phases. In the first phase, a model called conceptualisation lean implementation (CLIM) phase, inculcating, monitoring and controlling, manufacturing system transformation was designed to implement LP in wet grinder manufacturing industry. During the second phase, an investigation was conducted to examine the effect of implementing LP through CLIM model in wet grinder manufacturing industry. The outcome of this research indicated that CLIM model acts as a vehicle to successfully implement LP in wet grinder manufacturing industry. After reporting these activities, this paper is concluded with suggestions to conduct many more such investigations on implementing CLIM.
