Abstract [en]

Lean production principles has for a long time been hailed as a solution for improving efficiency and competitiveness in manufacturing firms. Recently, however, advanced digital solutions have received more space in the spotlight. Does this mean that the era of Lean is over or just changed character? The purpose of this paper is to, based on a large scale survey of manufacturing units in Europe, explore the relationship between the use of Lean production practices and the technological practices associated with the use of digital technologies in production. The study shows that lean practices are strong predictors of firms’ introduction of digital technologies in production by manufacturing firms. The results indicate that lean, as defined in this paper, may indeed be a prerequisite for digital technologies used in production.
