Abstract

Nowadays, most of production industries (also casting industry) strive to implement properly functioning organizational structures, the activities of which must ensure the increased level and quality of manufactured elements while eliminating unnecessary wastefulness - generated during the manufacturing process. The implementation of tools comprising Lean Manufacturing methodology and the application of many qualitative methods make it possible to create properly functioning technical-organizational structure aimed at avoiding defects, or if they occur - to identify them quickly.The article presents the impact of selected production system tools organized according to the principles complied with Lean Manufacturing concept (LM) on the product's quality of the enterprise specializing in casting production. The article characterizes basic and often applied Lean tools which, as an effect, contribute to the improvement of the quality of the manufactured products.

Keywords: Lean Manufacturing, quality, casting defects
