In recent times, more and more organizations have started implementing lean principles for process improvement. It started from Toyota and then followed by organizations across the world. The realization that there is something more too traditional processes has motivated the organizations to follow lean. Lean helps organizations reduce waste, remove non-value- adding activities, and achieve business excellence. Sustainable implementation of lean also helps organizations to incur benefits at a greater extent and longer time. The present study uses factor analysis to ascertain the factors effective for lean implementation in manufacturing companies of India. The survey was done amongst the employees of Indian manufacturing organizations, and analysis was conducted. The study revealed five important factors: Employee Engagement, Management Commitment, Hierarchy, Infrastructural Needs, and Standardization as the success factors in the Indian manufacturing world. Moreover, the study gives various variables that impact these factors. The study proposes to focus more on the five identified factors compared to other factors like supplier involvement, customer involvement, financial capability, participation of experts, which have a low impact on the implementation of lean. The analysis done shows the impacting factors responsible for the effective implementation of lean in manufacturing organizations of India.
