The paper is focused on the development of lean methodology in small companies with no previous lean knowledge. The lean integrated model proposed has the aim to link the pillars of lean thinking to an operative view.
The aim of the paper is to investigate the integration of different analytical and simulations tools to support people to make decisions, and to show how the relationships among the different methods can be advantageous to solve specific problems. ORM (object - role modeling), PN (Petri Nets) and SD (System Dynamics) have been combined to capture the static… (More)
