Integration of Lean and Agile Manufacturing Based on Principles from Wikinomics

Tatiana Ustyugová, Darja Noskievičová


The purporse of this paper is to show the algorithm of the lean and agile manufacturing integration based on the principles from Wikinomics, which will lead to a steady production process and easier growth of company’s success. Lean and agile manufacturing are production concepts, which become more and more popular at the modern market. Nowadays we live at the period of possible, global communication, where the success of companies depends on customers’ satisfaction and the correct cost management. Therefore the principles from Wikinomics can be used like as integration method of lean and agile manufacturing. The originality of this paper lies in the creation of the new general algorithm of the lean and agile manufacturing integration was created, which will be used for the future research with special limitations of the Czech market.
