Abstract The Master Thesis intentions are to claryfy and describe the production philosophy of lean manufacturing and to find out the requirements needed by "lean thinking" when applied in an enterprise. Afterwards I will desribe the "lean thinking"; what the pronciples of this philosophy are and what objectives it wants to achieve wen it is applied in a manufacturing system. I will give an overview as well as the main tools and methods usually used in a Lean Enterprise. Finally it would be interesting to find out what the weaknesses of Lean are, in which segments of the market fails and what kind of production philosophy would be interesting to practice in this specific environment.
