Abstract: The objective of this research is to emphasize a need for an integrated approach to the lean newlinemanufacturing system in order to achieve total leanness along the supply chain to gain newlinesignificant competitive advantages. The research focuses on the following five key newlinedimensions. newlinei. Pricing, investment and order quantity decisions in a supply chain between a newlinemanufacturer and a retailer: The relation between the optimal configuration of newlineinvestment, price and order quantity from the perspective of manufacturer and retailer newlineare discussed. The collaboration between manufacturer and retailer for setting a newlinemaximum-profit price is recommended. newlineii. Just-in-time (JIT) inventory analysis for a buyer and vendor considering the quality newlineimprovement, setup cost and lead time reductions: The integrated joint buyer-vendor newlineoptimal policy compared to independent buyer-vendor optimal policy is newlinerecommended with the objective of minimum total cost. Buyer integration with high newlinequality vendor is preferred due to lower total costs. Constraints on the quality newlineimprovement yields higher total relevant cost for buyer and vendor coordination. newlineInvestment on quality results in small lot size, which is a hallmark of JIT system. JIT newlineintegrated inventory model is investigated with the objective of simultaneously newlineoptimizing the order quantity, setup cost, process quality, number of deliveries and newlinelead time. The investments in setup cost reduction, quality improvement and lead time newlinereduction, results in reduction of total cost, order quantity and number of deliveries.
