Few companies have tapped into the full potential of lean. The sustaining lean test is a method to assess how well a facility can sustain their lean implementation efforts or any implementation initiative. The primary feature of the test is the 10 keys that will be examined by an assessment team. If a facility can sustain these 10 keys, they are likely to sustain lean.
