The small scale industries have less concern about having an improvement program at their organization. Due to this reason they suffer from common problems like having low productivity, efficiency, increased production cost, waste, and non-value added time, etc. The plant resources are also not effectively utilized by them. This result in production of low quality product, defects in finished goods, increased inventory etc. Implementation of lean manufacturing overcomes these above stated problems thereby, increasing the productivity and eliminating the wastes. In this paper an effort has been made to overcome these problems and to successfully implement the lean manufacturing technique in a small scale industry. For implementing the same a HDPE polythene bottle manufacturing industry was approached to apply lean manufacturing.
