Five variables of lean manufacturing system implementation have been identified from the literature and subsequent discussions with experts’ opinions. Classification of the variables has been carried out based upon the Mean, Variance and Kurtosis values. Relationships of variables have been carried out through the hypothesis testing. Top Management commitment have strong relationship with the variables (capability and competence of the sales network, Quality of the human resources, Customer involvement in quality program, Collaborative decision making) and the hypothesis test of the variables proved the relationship among the variables. The conclusions so drawn may be further modified to apply in real situation. Clear understanding of relationship among these variables will help organizations to prioritize and manage these variables more effectively and efficiently to get more speed in lean implementation.
